Madagascar National Parks manages 43 parks, but there are nearly 120 protected areas which are distributed across the country under various categories.

It is difficult not to forget anything as this fauna, whose rate of endemism reaches 80%, is rich and diversified.

It is present all over the island, in the heart of the dry or humid forest, in the savannah and the thorny bush, at the bottom of the canyons, at the edge of the lakes and rivers… and of course, in the magnificent seabed of the Indian Ocean.

We are going to meet this unique heritage in the heart of some of the most renowned reserves and national parks in Madagascar.
