Analamerana

Analamerana (Analamera) Special Reserve is located about 75 km from Diego Suarez in northeastern Madagascar. It is the only protected area to house Perrier's Sifaka (Propithecus perrieri), a critically endangered species.

Analamerana covers 34,700 hectares, ranging from 10-648 meters in altitude. The reserve has been hard hit by logging.

Biodiversity highlights for Analamerana includes seven endemic species of birds, three species of baobabs (Adansonia perrieri, Adansonia madagascariensis, and Adansonia suareziensis), the Madagascar Pond-heron (Ardeola idae), Van Dam's Vanga (Xenopirostris damii), and the Vontsira.

The best time to visit Analamerana is mid May to early October. The rainy season runs from November to March.

Analamerana can be reached by 4x4 from Diego. Facilities are limited.
