Welcome to Réserve Forestière de Kirindy
Réserve Forestière de Kirindy is popular with scientists and travellers for its amazing wildlife. Night walks are a particular highlight, and it's one of very few places in Madagascar where seeing a fossa, Madagascar's most celebrated and largest carnivore, is highly likely. Located 60km northeast of Morondava, it covers about 125 sq km and was established in the late 1970s as an experiment in sustainable logging and forest management. It's now a protected area. One look at the cleared land either side of the reserve and you'll see just how important this protected area is.
