The Makay massif

Located on the southeastern border of the Menabe region, near Malaimbandy, the Makay massif is still unknown. Yet it is an outstanding spot, different from but just as wonderful as the Bemaraha Tsingy. It covers over 5,000 km². The Makay, a yellow sandstone massif, originated from the erosion of huge massifs of crystalline rocks several hundred million years ago. It is made up of high plateaus covered with forests or vegetation typical of western Madagascar, and very deep canyons where you find rainforest-type vegetation like that in the east of Madagascar. It is an unspoilt sanctuary where life has developed in total isolation for millions of years. So the Makay has become the new playground for great adventurers with a taste for places to explore.
