Ambohijanahary Special Reserve

This small reserve (24,750 ha, between 800 and 1,600 m above sea level) is located in west-central Madagascar near Bongolava, between Tsiroanomandidy and Maintirano. The nearest airport is Tsiroanomandidy, a town best known for its large cattle market. The reserve provides an opportunity to see Decken’s sifaka (Propithecus diadema) and possibly crowned sifaka (Propithecus coronatus), but there are presently no facilities for visitors. Trips should be organized through an Antananarivo-based tour operator, especially since there is a danger of cattle-rustlers in the area.
