Highlights and main attractions of Anjajavy Private Reserve

Enjoying a remote and astoundingly beautiful location on Madagascar’s northwest coastline, Anjajavy is a secluded fishing village made up of wilderness beaches and azure waters backed by deciduous forests, mangroves and tsingy limestone. Madagascar under a microscope, it offers the chance to enjoy diverse topography, blissful beaches and coves, as well as seeing some of the endemic wildlife for which this country is renowned.

There is some fantastic wildlife to be found in this 8000 hectare nature reserve, differentiating it from the other beach resorts of the world. You may spot Coquerels sifaka, common brown lemurs or the tiny nocturnal mouse lemur, weighing in at just over 100 pounds. There are leaf-nosed bats, rare and colourful birds, amazing reptiles, from chameleons and oplure de Cuvier Iguana and tortoises. You might be lucky enough to spot the countries largest carnivorous mammal, the fossa, which, with similar features to large felines, is actually part of the mongoose family. This seductive, cougar-like animal roams the forests throughout the day and night, growing up to 1.5 metres in length. 

The reserve is also known to have in excess of 1,800 flora species. 

Anjajavy is usually accessed via private airplane landing on the Anjajavy peninsula, penned ‘the peninsula at the end of the world for its natural richness in flora and fauna. The Anjajavy Lodge is the main accommodation option, set in a privileged beachfront position in the heart of the reserve. Staying in authentic rosewood villas, you will have great access to catamarans and canoes along the idyllic coastline, extending out into the Mozambique Channel.
