We made only a short hike in the park but saw the amazing "riviere perdu" (lost river), a large hole in the rocky ground that is in open connection with the distant Indian Ocean. There are brown lemurs in the forest. The other interesting sight are the tsingy, weird spiky rock formations.

The Tsingy Rary is most shocking scenery, the local guide is great, Mr. Goulam, he knows every plant and animal.

This place was cool! First time I have seen the Tsingy, so I was fascinated! Some really good walks. You could fill in 3 days easy IF the whole park was open. When we were there some of the park was closed due to the rainy season being just finished, AND bandits being present in the area robbing visitors of... More

This park is fantastic with good (English speaking) guides, tsingy, caves, underground rivers and lots of animals to see. We visited during Christmas and even then it was very quiet with only few other people around. Absolutely amazing!
