Welcome to Ialatsara Lemur Forest Camp
Created in 2002, this 10-sq-km private reserve lies 83km south of Ambositra on the RN7, making it a convenient stop, and a logical one if you're not going to visit Ranomafana. It’s also a nice way to break up the long drive. The reserve is home to six species of lemur and seven species of chameleon. A guide costs Ar25,000 for up to four people. Overall it’s mildly pricey, but if this is your only chance to wander the jungle in search of wildlife, you should take it.
There are a number of simple bungalows (Ar35,000) with balconies and bucket showers in a camp setting, and family-style meals (Ar25,000), but travellers have complained that the welcome is frosty.
