Grotte des Chauves-Souris

Cave in Réserve Spéciale Ankarana

The impressive Grotte des Chauves-Souris (bat) cave has superb stalactites and stalagmites, and thousands of bats (eight species, including Commerson's leaf-nosed bat, or Hipposideros commersoni). The cave is fairly easy to reach from the park's main entrance in two to three hours.
