Highlights of Madagascar

Marojejy National Park

Scroll

From the spice town of Sambava, penetrate inland to the pristine primary rainforests and highlands of Marojejy National Park – one of the most challenging wildlife locations on the island. Having been a Strict Reserve until the end of 1998, it had only been explored by scientific researchers.

In 1999, clients of Reef & Rainforest were the first lay visitors to enter Marojejy and it surpassed their highest expectations. They found the rare silky sifaka, four other lemur species and the rare helmet vanga, only seen in undisturbed upland eastern rainforest and a special treat for keen birders.

Marojejy boasts 115 bird species, 11 lemurs, 148 reptiles and amphibians – in fact it contains 33% of all Madagascar’s species of reptiles and amphibians. Botanically interesting, Marojejy has many rare species of fern and palm (50 species).

Marojejy is perhaps the ultimate Madagascar reserve in view of its unspoilt status and range of altitudes. The three days’ ascension is mildly strenuous, the camping comfortable and the trail rough and narrow, but certainly well worth it for the right people.
