For those looking to spot lemurs, the park is home to a good variety, the most common of which is the Coquerel’s sifaka, but you can also see the endemic golden brown mouse lemur, fat-tailed dwarf lemur, western woolly lemur and grey mouse lemur. The Coquereli circuit is – as the name suggests – the best trail for lemur spotting and can take up to two hours to complete.
Bird lovers should consider the Retendrika, which is also a two hour circuit. Here you will see varied medicinal plants and a great array of general plant life, from which some of the most popular birds such as the banded kestrel and vanga are known to feed. Another great trail to combine the wildlife and birdlife of the area is the Source of Life, which offers insight into the Sakavala communities and passes through areas of grazing birds and lemurs.
You may also see crocodile in some of the lakes such as Ravelobe, and nocturnal hikes are also recommended to see some of the lemurs come alive in their nocturnal environment.
