“Madagascar is off the African coast in the Indian Ocean. Dubbed the "ark of evolution", its eco-diversity is extraordinary. About 30 species of Lemur monkey live here.

Tsingy de Bemaraha is on the western side of the island. The pinnacle formations cover 1,520 square kilometres. The limestone needles are about 100 meters high. Tsingy means "pointed peaks" in the local Madagascan language. The limestone seabed gradually rose to create a plateau around 200 million years ago. Heavy rain fell on the plateau, slowly eroding and sharpening the rocks.”
