Tsingy de Bemaraha, Madagascar

Ring-tailed lemur, Tsingy de Bemaraha National park, Madagascar

A certain series of animated films may have made Madagascar a top-of-mind destination for eight-year-olds around the world, but in reality, the tremendous biodiversity of this African island is even more impressive than the movies make it out to be.

Yes, Madagascar is home to the now-famous ring-tailed lemur, but it is also the only place on Earth you’ll find the stump-tailed chameleon, the Deckens sifaka, and more than 55 species of birds.

Tsingy de Bemaraha, also known as the ‘Labyrinth of Stone’, is a remarkably wild and remote region with limestone shards that resemble dragon’s teeth erupting from the surface of the earth.

Tours of Tsingy de Bemaraha are often paired with expeditions to Tsingy de Ankarana, a national park home to a wide variety of the beloved lemur.

The Olympe du Bemaraha hotel provides excellent access to Tsingy de Bemaraha in a truly off-the-beaten-path park location.
