Dedicated to The National Park of Bemaraha in Madagascar. Classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, this park is becoming the most popular natural site in Madagascar, with more than 7000 yearly visitors. Gifted with an exceptional flora, fauna and topography, the park has been the subject of numerous television documentaries, and this is the first time the beauty of the park has been captured and presented in a pictorial album.
Stunning images of the stone forest capture the strange stark beauty of this area. This topography of eroded limestone may exist in other areas around the world, but nowhere as tall, slender and extensive as the spires here.

Beneath this apparent austerity, an extraordinary world of forest canyons, humid caves and burning karst karren is inhabited by fundamentally differing plants and animals who thrive in close proximity. The caves are equally exceptional!
