In the northwest corner of Madagascar is Tsingy de Bemaraha National Park. On a Day Trip, I set out for a hike in a harness, ready to use for climbing. That was exciting in and of itself. There was a bit of climbing and a bit of tunneling and two rope suspension bridges.
The best part of the landscape was the clustering of spear heads jutting upward.
But other outcroppings were just as dramatic.
For me, it inspired taking time out to imagine the images that nature might be suggesting.
In this stone forest, were lemurs and lizards and a bit of vegetation.
Toward the end of the day, we boarded canoes for a short ride along the Manambola River.
The canoe ride included surprise stops to investigate riverside caves.
The National Park covers more than five hundred fifty square miles and is a Unesco World Heritage Site. When planning a trip to Madagascar, this is a well worth destination. Like everywhere in Madagascar, don’t forget to figure the travel days to get to your destination.
