One of Madagascar’s main attractions is its National Parks and special reserves. As the world’s fourth largest island, Madagascar’s habitats are wide ranging and home to a spectacular array of wildlife. Of its several thousand species of animal, bird, insect and plant life, some 80% are only found here.
Madagascar National Parks was founded in 1990 to assist in the conservation of Madagascar’s unique endemic species and natural resources across all national parks and reserves. The parks and attractions range from the popular Andasibe National Park, which almost guarantees lemur sightings, and Berenty Reserve with its dancing sifakas, to private islands such as Nosy Tsarabanjina and the mountainous waterfall-clad terrain of Amber Mountain.
If National Parks and Special Reserves are your thing, you’ll find all the information you need here including deciduous forest reserves and parks, the eastern rain forests, island and coastal parks and the impressive spiny forests with their bizarre mix of drought resistant plants.
