The Ankarana Reserve is a small plateau with elevations exceeding 1 220m, and limestone that is up to 150-million years old. The rugged relief and dense vegetation have helped protect the region from human intrusion.

The plateau slopes gently to the east, but to the west ends abruptly in the Wall of Ankarana, a sheer cliff that extends for 25km and rises as high as 280m. Fields of razor-sharp pinnacles carpet the upper portion of the massif, while below there are mysterious caves, caverns and sheer cliffs, where sunken tropical forests offer a sanctuary to rare wildlife.
