A breathtaking river trip across the Tsiribihina
The Tsiribihina is a riverwhich flows from the central plateau of Madagascar down to the west coast. For an extensive tour on this water we recommend immediately to plan five days, as the experience becomes even more intense this way. If you still want to have a Visit to the Tsingy you should, in the best case, immediately eight to ten days for this tour. In principle, it would be possible to take the tour of the river on your own, that is, without guides or additional forces to assist with paddling. Since for a trip on the Tsiribihina. do not require approval, many vacationers have already decided to use this method. The basic idea here is usually to save money and get a greater sense of adventure by exploring the river on their own. In fact, this idea only exposes tourists to unnecessary danger: The Overnight stays take place directly on the shore and rich Europeans camping there unaccompanied could be a little temptation for the very poor locals, if necessary. Moreover, the Tsiribihina as a river is not without its problems. In places the water is relatively choppy and experienced men who know the river like the back of their hand will help enormously. There are two ways to navigate the Tsiribihina. One Motor launch certainly represents the most convenient method, as you will have to row less and may also progress a bit faster. Significantly But more authentic and stylish is the tour by dugout canoe. You get more sun, have less engine noise around you and can enjoy the ride much more. Enjoy more intensively. In addition, the animals that are at home on the right and left of the river are not infrequently scared away by the noise of the engines. Animal observations then become much more difficult. By the way: If you also want to observe some animals during the 160 kilometer long stretch to Morondova, it is also very advisable to take a guide with you. This knows the hotspots of lemurs and co. and knows exactly where on the route you should go ashore to observe some of the posh animals up close.
The Tsingy of Bemaraha
If you want to experience something extraordinary at the end of your river trip, then you should take a somewhat tedious car ride and definitely visit the Tsingy de Bemaraha National Park visit. This is part of the UNESCO World Natural Heritage since 1990 and will certainly impress and delight you. The area is actually a Karst landscape, however, with very striking limestone formations impresses. These are called Tsingy by the Madagascans and have also helped the park to its name. The Tsingy are pointed limestone needleswhich "grow" upwards out of the earth and a kind of stone forest form. In between, however, there are also real forests again and again, in which about 650 different plant species occur, numerous lemurs and other mammals as well as various reptiles live. If you have the chance to make a side trip to the Tsingys, you should plan a few more days for this in order to duly explore the national park to be able to.
