Tsingy de Bemaraha - MADAGASCAR - UNESCO #494
The second card I've received from Madagascar shows Tsingy de Bemaraha Strict Nature Reserve, one of the several places in that island that have karstic landscapes, the majority of them made of limestone, but according to Christine, there are a few made of sand that she preferred to this one. Thanks again Christine, you can't imagine how happy I am to have this UNESCO cards in my collection that now rises to 373, only 608 to finish. This postcard took 15 days to arrive!
The Tsingy de Bemaraha Integral Nature Reserve is located in the District of Antsalova and comprises karstic landscapes and limestone uplands cut into impressive 'tsingy' peaks and a 'forest' of limestone needles, the spectacular canyon of the Manambolo river, rolling hills and high peaks. The undisturbed forests, lakes and mangrove swamps are the habitat for rare and endangered lemurs and birds.
