Fodor's Review

This dry, dense forest 114 km (71 miles) east of Mahajanga is a haven for the nocturnal Microcebus lemur, the world's smallest primate, along with 129 bird, 10 amphibian, and 44 reptile species, including the big boa. Among the 823 plant species, look out for the mighty Mpanjakabenitany trees, up to 15 meters (50 feet) tall. Wear a hat, light clothes and good walking shoes and bring water, food, and your camera. Night visits are possible, as is camping and staying at a lodge, and English-speaking guides are available for two- and three-hour tours.
