Welcome to Réserve Spéciale de Beza-Mahafaly
There are six circuits through the park, with the pick being:
Circuit Ihazoara (4km, three hours) Natural botanical garden, canyons and good lemur viewing.Circuit Parcelle 1 (2km, two hours) Gallery forest, excellent lemur viewing, a riverside bird hide and the chance to see radiated tortoises.Circuit Parcelle 2 (12km, four hours) Spiny forest, diurnal lemurs and a sweeping viewpoint.Visitors can pitch a tent near the scientific station and simple rooms may be available if not in use by the scientists, both for a small fee. To get here and around you'll need a 4WD (the reserve is 35km east of Betioky on rough tracks; the turn-off is signposted at the southern end of Betioky). You'll need to bring your own food and supplies.
The roads between Andranovory and Betioky and south of Betioky are considered unsafe after dark.
