KIRINDI National Reserve

Kirindy is a reserve located on Madagascar's west coast, in Toliara province, an hour drive from Morondava. It is privately managed in one of the most endangered ecosystems in Madagascar, dry deciduous forests.

It is considered the main destination of the island to observe nocturnal fauna and is the only place where visitors will have opportunity to find the colossal giant rat as well as at least six species of nocturnal lemurs, among which is the Madame Berthe Mouse Lemur, the smallest primate in the world. Some endemic reptiles and an equally unusual flora can also be observed. 

However, the most important animal we can find in Kirindi is the Fosa, a Malagasy carnivore that has evolved in appearance and behavior as a big cat, when in fact it is more closely related to the mongoose.
