The massif of Ankarana is dominated by attractive limestone karst formations called locally “Tsingy”, it extends on a little over 20km on the west coast. We count an underground complex network, extending over nearly 120km.
Ankarana is home of 13 species of bats, 10 species of Lemurs (Crowned Lemur and Brown Lemur), and 92 species of birds. The specific fauna, adapted to the life caves, gives to Ankarana its particular character. Ankarana preserves a dense, tropical deciduous forest with spiny forests, baobabs, tall trees.
Rare and endemic birds and many species found their holiday cottage in the reserve, as the fosa, the unique predator of the species of the family of Felidae in Madagascar.
