Destination Details

Madagascar

Bemarivo

The small Special Reserve of Bemarivo lies on the western part of Madagascar next to Besalampy and just 5 km from the coast. It was established in 1956 and covers a surface of 13 km². Despite its tiny stretch of land, the ecosystems are quite varied, ranging from subtropical to dry deciduous forest, savannas, lakes and marshlands. This wetlands are the main attraction of the Reserve: immense flocks of waterbirds fly around and very active crocodiles are easily seen. The Sakavala communities settled here live from breeding, fishing and farming. The slash and burn agriculture is the main threat for the Reserve: in this extremely dry region fires are sometimes devastating.
