Anjajavy is renowned for its gardens and the surrounding reserve, which contain a wide variety of stunning landscapes and are rich in wildlife. Many species that are hard to find elsewhere on the island are surprisingly common or easy to approach in this hard-to-reach paradise. Coquerel's sifakas, brown lemurs and several nocturnal lemurs leap from tree to tree around the chalets, Madagascar fish eagles patrol the coastline and crested ibis feed in the long grasses. The Lodge's guides help you find some of the more elusive reptiles, including pygmy chameleons, brightly coloured day geckos and beautiful ground boas.
