Photographer's Note

The eroded Limestone formations of Madagascar are called Tsingy. Some say Tsingy is the Malagasy word for needle, others say it's named Tsingy because of the sound they make when you walk on them: "tzzing".

We reached the Grand Tsingy of National Park Ankarana after a 9 hour walk (incl. way back). Below in the deep lies Lac Vert, a lake studied by late Jacques Costeau and his team for 6 months. The place is full of peculiar mammals, birds and plants like the Elephant Feet. Between the rock formations lie sunken forests with ecosystems of their own. A truly fascinating place.
