We offer tours of from one to several days' duration to hike and explore the forests and caves in this world-renown natural reserve.
'Tsingy' is a Malagasy word referring to the rocky limestone pinnacles that were once a coral reef millions of years ago. They make a ' tsing ' sound when struck, thus the local name. The many jagged 'daggers' making up the highest parts of this unique landscape are as sharp as knives. This massive limestone formation is surrounded by dry forest and conceals numerous caves and unexplored canyons. You will see stalagmites, stalactites, immense rooms, underground rivers, and fantastic fauna and flora.
