Discovery of the Tsingy

The Tsingy, a word of Sakalava origin derived from mitsingitsingy which means "to walk on tiptoe", has been a Unesco World Heritage Site since 1990. A clay-limestone massif, the creation of the two coral reefs (Bemaraha and Ankarana), began when Madagascar was detached from Africa... about 150 thousand years ago.
It is these coral reefs that are at the origin of the creation of the Bemaraha Massif as well as the Ankarana Massif (in the north-east). They were therefore born under the sea. The Tsingy of Bemaraha, are unique and conceal treasures of fauna and flora in a unique setting in the world.
