Birding Tour Madagascar: 6-day Berenty Reserve Extension 2018

Duration: 6 days

The small, private Berenty Reserve, situated at the southern tip of Madagascar, is one of the island’s best-known and most frequently visited nature reserves. Stretching along the Mandrare River, it is composed of deciduous riverine gallery forest and a small stretch of spiny forest, where virtually all the plants are covered in thorns.

Although most famous for its dense lemur population, with hundred of individuals per square kilometer (research on lemurs has been continuing here for more than three decades), the reserve is also a haven for birdwatchers, boasting a high number of endemic species. With luck we might be able to find Madagascan Sandgrouse, Madagascan Green Pigeon, Torotoroka Scops Owl, and perhaps even Madagascan Cuckoo-Hawk here.

This extension to our Best of Madagascar: 15-day Birding and Wildlife Tour 2018 can also be booked as a stand-alone tour. It can also be combined, preceding the main tour, with our Madagascar: 6-day Masoala Penisula Pre-tour 2018 and, preceding that, with our Madagascar: 7-day Northwest (Ankarafantsika/Betsiboka Delta Pre-tour 2018.
