A preserved Sanctuary
Nestled in the heart of the fascinating region of Menabe, Kirindy National Park is located at about two hours by road from Morondava. Since 2000, the Association Nationale pour la Gestion des Aires Protégées (ANGAP) is in charge of this Sakalava tribe’s treasure. Resembling in one hand the tropical vegetation of the West and the southern dry vegetation in another one, Kirindy’s endemic fauna and flora are captivating. At the time being, the site shelters lemurs, crocodiles, tortoises, snakes and lizards. Lucky people who experience a night hiking on the area often have the chance to catch a glimpse of the nocturnal lemurs’ silhouette through foliage. Vositse – the largest rodent in Madagascar – and the Fosa are among the main tourist attractions in this Park.
