Big Tsingy was beautiful - def worth the long drive from Tana. I must say that lots of reviews say how awful the roads are from Morondava to Bekopaka - I wouldn't say they are awful - it was what exactly what I was expecting...More

Very hard place to get to, and you must enjoy hard hikes under difficult conditions to get to the desirable places, but the nature and the views are just spectacular.

This UNESCO world heritage site is definately worth the drive and is one of the most impressive sigths in Madagascar. The 4 hour tour is quite streneous and involves quite a lot of climbing and vertigo. A great combination of scenery and adventure

This is one of the most amazing landscapes and very worth a visit in Madagascar. We went three days doing different tours, one day in the big Tsingy (the most impressive part), and two in the "small" one. Nobody agreed on the age kids must...More

When our guide stopped to pick up our harnesses I knew this would be no walk in the park! Be prepared for the 1.5 hour drive on 17km of appalling roads to reach the car park and having asked us how we were for heights...More

This is a very nice morning walk. Not to demanding, but not easy. You can choose a small or big Tsingy tour, always with a guide, and it also can be combined with a a small cave and river. Nice view, interesting, some time demanding.

You will certainly require cash. We found almost no places, either accomodation or shops, accepted credit cards or, if they did, there was a minimum spend of 200,000Ar. We had issues with the ATMs at the airport in Tana... More
