This is small village with a managed reserve with hundreds of ring tailed lemurs to visit on a short shady and flat walk from the village visitor's center. Easy to see very up close many, many lemurs on a flat walk way through the reserve....More

A smallish reserve that is managed by the locals. A pleasant walk, mostly in the shade. The reserve is home to about 800+ lemurs- all ring tailed lemurs aka King Julien! Guaranteed to see the lemurs here going about their lives- swinging, playing, fighting, grooming,...More

We wanted particularly to see the ringtailed lemur, and from the trip, we made a detour from Antananarivo to Ambalavao, only for this. But when we started the walk, we arrived at very good time, around 8 a.m, and the lemurs were all close and...More

Although this is a small reserve, they have a remarkable conservation story. The lemur population continues to expand as the reserve gets tourists and is able to put money back into buying land and growing protected habitat. It employs locals who were all excellent wildlife...More

This national park is quite small, easy walk (if you do not want to do the bit climbing as well),very likely to spot lemurs, chameleons and other animals. The famous Katta lemurs can be fund here and the surrounding mountains are beautiful.
