Anjajavy Private Nature Reserve

Why visit Anjajavy Private Nature Reserve?

This remote reserve is on a peninsula on the northwest coast. Accessible only by air, it is well worth the journey, with varied wildlife, excellent birding and fascinating landscape, combining forest, beach and mangroves.
Reasons to visit Anjajavy Private Nature Reserve include:

  • Take a leisurely, long walk through a forest of tall baobab trees. Some of these are sacred, and the locals place offerings such as flowers and honey by them. 
  • Look for wildlife - observe lemurs in the trees, or watch out for chameleons, frogs, lizards, and the fossa, Madagascar’s largest carnivore. 
  • Birdwatchers can look to the skies and spot sacred ibis, fish eagles, birds of paradise, the Madagascan harrier hawk and kingfishers. 
  • Try to count the flowers ”“ Madagascar is home to 13,000 species of plant and more than 1000 different orchids! 
  • Enjoy beachlife - go swimming, fishing, snorkelling, or water skiing, or take a walk or canoe trip through the mangroves
  • Meet the local villagers and shop for locally embroidered cloth, or watch the fishermen returning with their catch.

When to go to Anjajavy Private Nature Reserve

The cyclone season (January to March) is not really recommended. Many wildlife species(not lemurs)hibernate during May and June. July to October is high season in Madagascar and great for wildlife. Baby lemurs are born in October to November, and the best birding and amphibian watching months are November and December, which are also two of the hottest months.
