This reserve run by locals is a great place not only for ring tailed lemurs (but if you want to be hundred percent sure to see them, visit this place). There is a small forest under the mountains where they live. Entry was 10 000...More

This is just 12kms south of Ambalavao and makes a great trip in the mornings when the ring-tailed lemurs are active. The 2-3 hour walk takes you through the small forest to a large lake and then up to a rocky ridge where there are...More

Anjà reserve is my favourite. The landscape is beautiful. The reserve is handed by the community, so your money will go directly helping them. 12 km South of Ambalavao, the place is the limit of the highland, or the gate to the South, with its...More

This low key Park is led by the local community, meaning that all money earned supports the locals rather than being taken away. They have excellent guides who really enjoy giving you a tour, and light up when you pick a longer trip. The pricing...More

When I saw the map of this reserve, I was underwhelmed, but one we started our light hike through it, I was won over. There were loads of ring-tailed lemurs in the area. They were not put off or shy around humans, but they were...More

You won't see so many katas anywhere else in nature. There are several large kata families in the park and considering a rather small surface, you just have to meet them. The park does not give you any safari feeling, because the animals are so...More
