Anja Reserve, Ambalavao
A woodland reserve dominated by fallen rocks, Anja Reserve sits centered on a freshwater lake at the base of a tall cliff. Spanning over 30 hectares (74 acres), pockets of forests between boulders and two small caves provide a home to bats and barn owls. Created in 2001 with funds from the United Nations Development Programme, the reserve is home to some 300 lemurs, planthoppers, flatida rosea nymphs, and Malagasy lanter bugs which congregate around countless flowers. Get a local guide and follow two main trails. The reserve is also known for a variety of lizards, including Barbour's day geckos, Madagascar's girdled lizards, and dangalia lizards.
