The Tsingy de Bemaraha Strict Nature Reserve is located near the western coast of Madagascar in the Melaky region. The area was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1990 due to its unique geography, preserved mangrove forests, and wild bird and lemur populations.
The southern end of the protected area has become the Tsingy de Bemaraha National Park, covering 666km2. The northern end of the protected area remains a strict nature reserve.
Tourists can access the national park by road from Morondava, a town 150km south of the park. Limited access is also possible from the town of Antsalova, which can be reached by plane from Antananarivo or Mahajanga.
