Visitors will then undoubtedly put Berenty on top of their favorite memorable places due to its unique biodiversity, and the fun they have with the lemurs when seeing them dancing naturally and freely along the open wide flat trails of this reserve allowing the ring-tails, the sifakas to perform on their own. Besides, birds are also among the interests that visitors would not take for granted since the Giant Coua and so many more will be easily spotted in this reserve. Overnight at Berenty Lodge (Top)

The lemur Catta Maki known as the ring-tailed lemurs, are very friendly and seem to be very happy for photographs.

At night, look for the white-footed sportive lemur, the Grey mouse lemur, the newly recognized red-and-grey mouse lemur.
