This reserve is an initiation of the local community, which makes it a great concept. Currently, according to our local guide, there are around 600 ring-tailed lemurs living in the reserve, which makes it practically certain that you will encounter them. However, do try to...More

Are you interested in seeing Ringtailed Lemurs from close up? If so, than is this the park you shouldn't miss. You will be basically surrounded by Lemurs, so close that you could touch them (is forbidden!). My tip: go there in the morning (~8:00am) as...More

Best place to see the ring tailed lemurs up close. All over the trees and can walk up to them pretty close. Bit of a hike. Not for the very old.

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
