Wildlife of Ranomafana National Park

Red bellied lemur, Ranomafana National Park, MadagascarThe steep hills are covered in thick vegetation, occasionally broken by waterfalls and mountain streams. The park’s star attraction is the golden bamboo lemur, often found grazing amongst the bamboo thickets. Eleven other species of lemur include diademed sifakas that leap through the canopy during the day and brown mouse lemurs who race up and down tree trunks by night.

Heading deep into the park, you may hear the calls of cuckoo rollers, catch a glimpse of a leaf-tailed gecko or stumble across the graves of the Tanala, ‘the people of the forest’. It is well worth spending a few days hiking around this enchanting park.
