Tsimanampetsotsa National Park, dry forest, South-West Madagascar

Year: 2011 Taken by: Peter Prokosch
The Tsimanampetsotsa National Park with its salt lake and dry spiny forests comprises 430 km2 and has been protected since 1927 due to its biological meaning (high endemism of species). The calcareous plateau is covered with dense xerophilous thickets, baobabs and banyan trees.
