A very special place - Marotandrano

The Special Nature Reserve concentrates 12 species of lemurs, higher than the average number of lemurs to be found in the other nature reserves of Madagascar. The lemurs of Marotandrano include the indri indri, the varecia variegata, the propithecus diadema, the brown lemur and the golden bamboo lemur. All these can be spotted here, to the delight of the visitors to the reserve, which is also home to 16 different species of reptiles.
The melodious song of birds can also be heard, confirming their presence. A total of 140 bird species can be spotted flying between the trees, 56 endemic and two considered to be highly endangered (the Malagasy eagle or eutriorchis astur and humblot’s heron or ardea humbloti).
The landscape, consisting of steep valleys, savannah grassland, rivers, marshes, lakes and waterfalls, adds to the charms of the reserve. Trees growing to over 30m in height and a dense, humid evergreen forest add to the beauty of the natural environment. The forest is home to 73 families of flora, three endemic, as well as 157 species, 35 of which are endemic.
