Trip Planner: Africa / Madagascar / Antsiranana Province / Antsiranana (Diego Suarez) / Ankarana Special Reserve
Cross a deep ravine on a suspension foot bridge and admire Jurassic limestone formations at Ankarana Special Reserve, a wildlife reserve with some of the highest population density of primates in the world. Dark karst pinnacles, cave systems, and underground waters with dry deciduous and semi-deciduous forests cover 18,220 hectares (45,023 acres). Watch closely to see crowned lemurs, Sanford's brown lemur, Perrier's black lemur, brown mouse lemur, and dwarf lemurs, and you can also spot chameleons and leaf-tailed geckos. Many birds inhabit the area, including paradise flycatcher and the common jery.
