Ankarana Hero


Explore Ankarana

Located in northern Madagascar, south of Diego Suarez, Ankarana National Park is a geographical wonder - a unique island of limestone spires or 'Tsingys', raging rivers, tropical jungle, canyons, and underground caves, some of which have collapsed forming isolated pockets of river-fed forest with their own perfectly protected flora and fauna. Ankarana was a natural shelter for the Ankarana people whose kings were buried in the caves.
