Gorgeous, smaller reserve for a guided walking tour. We were greeted by ring tail lemurs, saw a sleeping crocodile and tortoises. On our walk we encountered two sifaka (amazing dance!), a Brown lemur family, one with a baby on her back. We took the boat...More

You no longer have to travel hours to the Berenty Reserve out west to see three species of lemurs. We were fortunate that all the lemurs were toting their babies. They are not fed by the tourists so are healthy. The canal boat ride was...More

We visited this reserve on our way to Fort Dauphin and I was very glad to have taken up this visit proposed by our tour organizer. We had spent 2 nights in a private reserve without the luck of spotting any lemurs and was feeling...More

Went for a morning tour and hired a guide who spoke very well about the history of the place. We saw four types of lemurs and interacted directly with 2 of them. They tend to come down if you have fruit and are very interested...More

Visited here whilst staying in Fort Dauphin. The journey there was bumpy but a great way of seeing the local area. A 4x4 is probably advisable but our taxi driver did a great job. The reserve is beautiful and it is well worth staying overnight...More

This was not too far away from where I was staying in Fort Dauphine and I loved my visit. You can go and walk the grounds to see lemurs, have a picnic lunch to enjoy the weather and they have a few rooms if you...More

The reserve is in the grounds of an old experimental forestry station with a partly restored and partly modernised colonial home serving as the base and office. Lemurs roam freely and there are other attractions such as tortoises and chameleons. Just 7km from Fort Dauphin,...More

Visited here whilst staying in Fort Dauphin and would recommend a visit here! The lemurs are very tame and respond to the guide shouting "Maki Maki" (plus the odd piece of banana) The grounds of the Reserve are beautiful but I would strongly recommend a...More

Obviously the main attraction for this place is the lemurs. The lemurs are very friendly, and it is a fantastic experience when you feed them and have them come near you. Don;t be fooled, this is not a truly `wild` experience, but that should't be...More
