Ivohibe Park

Fianarantsoa, Madagascar

Pic d´Ivohibe

Special Reserve lies 20 km south of Andringitra NP, on the southeast of Madagascar. It was created in 1964 and covers an area of 34,5 km². The climate differs depending on the altitude, which varies between 750 m and 2060 on the top of Ivohive Peak. The vegetation is formed by tropical humid rainforest on the eastern side, mountain dense forest on the highlands and grassy savannas on the western part of the Reserve. Pic d´Ivohibe represents an important water source for the local populations of Betsileo and Bara people, who use the numerous rivers crossing the Reserve for the rice paddies and grapevine growing. They are also zebu holders and farmers, and still practice slash and burn agriculture
