Day 1: Antananarivo > Tsingy of bemaraha > Morondava

Direction due west and the Bemaraha National Park for the flight over one of the most extraordinary landscapes: The Tsingy. These are real limestone cathedrals, cut out of dense networks of faults, crevasses and sculpted blocks.

The formation of this Middle Jurassic massif began 200 million years ago, when the sea still covered the Bemaraha region. Then this immense plate of corals and shells rose up. Exposed to the open air for 5 million years, the rain, the wind and the weather have done their work of erosion.

Arrival in Morondava and transfer to the hotel.
