Madagascar is rich in unique species, with the Lemur being the best known, and the "dancing" Sifaka being a favourite to sight and photograph. David Attenborough has a special love of the Indri (the largest of Lemurs) whose numbers were dwindling and now are well on the rise with projects designed to use the tourist income to help the stabilisation of the Indri population.
Following the February 2017 announcement of yet another species of lemur being found (Sheth's Dwarf Lemur - "Cheirogaleus" in Ankarana Special Reserve) the total species of Lemur is now 110 !! Add to this a myriad of birds, reptiles and other mammals .... there is somuch for the wildlife enthusiast to see here.
No one National Park or Reserve can offer you sufficient, so we strongly recommend you visit a range of locations where the variance in the ecosystems will show you just how amazing the wildlife of Madagascar is. You also need to be aware of the seasonality of wildlife watching - heavy rains, impassable roads and blistering heat are some of your challenges. We can help you plan a Madagascar tour which sees the best at a time that's great viewing, accessible and bearable.
