The dry deciduous forests are found along the western coast of Madagascar stretching from Diego on Madagascar’s northern tip to Morombe in the southwest.

Huge baobabs, slender palisander trees and ebony trees all vie for space and sunlight. These deciduous forests are easy to explore with leafy paths winding through the trees.

Wildlife of the western coast of Madagascar

There is a fantastic array of wildlife and some of Madagascar’s most endangered species. Lemurs are plentiful, as are bush pigs, birds, butterflies, snakes and chameleons. The dry deciduous reserves of Madagascar include Ampijoroa, known for rewarding night-walks, Kirindi, an area good for the giant jumping rat, pygmy mouse lemur and the fossa. Anjajavy has troops of Coquerel's sifaka, as well as caves harbouring several hundred fuzzy faced fruit bats.
