Berenty reserve in South Madagascar

Berenty reserve in South Madagascar is a commercial tourist orientated private reserve with semi tame ring tail lemurs and the jumping Verreaux Sifakas. Its about 80 km from Fort Dauphin, 2 hours along paved road. This is one of the best places to photograph the many lemurs up close as most are semi tame and pretty use to all the humans. The reserve is ultimately a touristy place with most of its trails widely paved flat and very accessible and quite easy to walk for those not use to the thick forest areas of the national reserves. This is where Lemur Street the popular Animal Planet animal ‘soap’ series is filmed. Many other nature documentaries on lemurs are also shot here given how easy to find the various animals and how close you can get to the semi tamed animals.
