We visited the National Park in one and half day. The first half was dedicated to the Petits Tsingy and the second one to the Grand Tsingy. We did the full tour, which requires a bit of training, but you don't need to be an expert. The local guides we'll drive you to the park and help to pass the... More

When planning our trip to Madagascar, visiting the Tsingy was on the top of our list of places we wanted to visit. Madagascar has a reputation for bad roads, and the one to reach the Tsingy was the worst we encountered during our entire trip. That being said, it was completely worth it. We spent two days in the area,... More

We did the Andamozauaky circuit (there are several in the park). It began with a great walk through the woods to see the lemurs and other very neat trees and plants (all explained to us by our guide) which then led us to our incredible exploration of this very unique part of the world, the Tsingy's. We harnessed in some... More

The Tsingy de Bemaraha is one of those things you need to see because it exists nowhere else on Earth. It's a long haul from Morondava over rough, dusty roads and a half-hour ferry ride, but it's worth it. There have been plenty of things written about these unique geological formations, so I will just offer some traveler tips: -... More

We tried to do both in 1 day - plan your visit so that you can spend a day at each at least. The bad road to the Grand Tsingy was the only let down. Our guide was very good and safety conscious.

A must see and experience. This is one of the most amazing places of the planet. Start with the small Tsingy and then do the so called Broadway trail in the Big Tsingy, never the other way round. It's adventurous and unforgettable. You need your own vehicle, there is no public transportation to the big Tsingy. To do both a... More

Tsingy de Bemaraha is one of the best places I've seen in my life . The gray contrast of stones and green plant is a perfect contrast . The adventurous excursion allows you to get inside the caves and admire the perfect work of nature has done over millions of years .

Access to the Tsingy only by 4WD. No climbing experience needed and my advice - try it! The view is just so great, this is real geological work of art

The history & culture behind the Tsingy is already interesting, to hike through it was indescribable! Through caves, bouldering and to reach the summit, it was well worth it! The view is amazing and the structures is mindblowing. Befitting to be UNESCO World heritage site!

This should be on everyone's bucket list. What a great day out, especially for the Big Tsingy. The small Tsingy and pirogue trip on the Manambolo River are also very good but do not compare to the Big Tsingy. The track, not a road, to the start of the trek is a typical track and it does take an hour... More
