Bemaraha Tsingy, limestone forest
(Madagascar)

On the west coast of Madagascar rises a fortress of sharp limestone needles, the Bemaraha Tsingy. Gardens lodged in the rocky crevices and adapted to the aridity of the needle summits are neighbour to the tropical exuberance found in the tracery of the deep canyons. Yet this inhospitable maze so difficult to access serves as a refuge to over 700 plant species and innumerable endemic animal species.
