Maningoza Special Reserve

This special reserve is in central-western Madagascar and covers about 7,900 ha of deciduous dry forest. Although accessible from Besalampy and Morondava, this is only possible during the dry season and by means of a four-wheel-drive vehicle. There are no accommodations nearby. Species that may be seen here include the gray mouse lemur (Microcebus murinus), the fat-tailed dwarf lemur (Cheirogaleus medius), the northern bamboo lemur (Hapalemur occidentalis), the red-fronted brown lemur (Eulemur rufifrons), and Decken’s sifaka (Propithecus deckenii).
