Although many of Madagascar’s biological treasures live in in the rainforest belt along the eastern and northern edges of the island, some species are better seen elsewhere on “Eighth Continent”. We have arranged for this extension to complement our main tour by visiting the west of Madagascar in order to offer chances for its largest terrestrial mammalian predator, namely the Fosa. Furthermore, we visit the stunning “Avenue of Baobabs”, formed by a collection of arguably Madagascar’s most magnificent baobab, the dramatic Grandidier’s Baobab.

Why this Photo Tour is for You

Destination Allure

The attractive Avenue of Baobabs, and the lanky Fosa, Madagascar’s apex mammalian land predator! Lemurs seen here include Verreaux’s Sifaka, Red-fronted Brown Lemur and this is the best place in Madagascar to see the huge Malagasy Giant Jumping Rat, which weights 2lbs!

Month of Travel

Our Photo Tour takes place in early summer before the summer rains arrive and during this period most lemurs have given birth to their adorable offspring!

Number of Species

Kirindy Forest is the home of many bird species, chameleons, snakes including Madagascar Ground Boa and aside from the famous Fosa, there is a sizeable contingent of nocturnal mammals including Malagasy Giant Jumping Rat and the tiny Madam Berthe’s Mouse Lemur, the smallest primate in the world!

Day 3: Morondava to Kirindy

Departing Morondava this morning, we make our way to Kirindy Forest Reserve which protects approximately 100 square kilometres of one of Madagascar’s most threatened ecosystems. This reserve is well known for its variety of lemur species such as Verreaux’s Sifaka and Red-fronted Brown Lemur but arguably the most sought-after species in the dry deciduous forest of Kirindy is Madagascar’s largest predator, the Fosa. Kirindy is also home to the nocturnal Giant Jumping Rat, and the world’s smallest primate, the miniscule Madame Berthe’s Mouse Lemur (which tips the scales at around 30g / 1.1oz!).
