Reniala Private Reserve

Reniala (meaning baobab in Malagasy) Private Reserve is a small 45-ha protected area less than 1km from the Mozambique Channel near the village of Ifaty-Mangily.  The reserve  is trying to develop eco-tourism in the area. 
The towering spiny forest is home to more than 2,000 plant species (many of them locally endemic), some spectacular and very old baobabs (there is a giant baobab of 12.5 m diameter) and a completely endemic plant family, the Didieraceae. Reniala includes a botanical trail and a bird sanctuary.  An early morning visit guarantees sightings of the Long-Tailed Ground Roller and Subdesert Mesite, two endemic species.

Nearby Ifaty is also a beach destination with a number of diving and snorkeling excursions as well as kite surfing and boat trips.
