Anjajavy Peninsula, Madagascar

A beach paradise on the Mozambique Channel, the Anjajavy Peninsula comprises 450 ha of dry deciduous forest punctuated by giant baobabs, mangrove forest and coastline of white sands and turquoise waters.

Wildlife viewing here is effortless. Watch large pearly white and chestnut Coquerel’s Sifakas lounging in the sun and brown lemurs nearby. Birders will revel in the kaleidoscope of colours, enjoying the sight of flocks of emerald green grey-headed lovebirds, electric orange Madagascar fodies, the rare Madagascar sacred ibis, sickle-billed vangas and the star bird - Madagascar fish eagles - one of the rarest birds in the world.

Gold-dust day geckos brighten up the mangroves and panther chameleons can be found stalking prey at about head height as they melt from white to red to blue. Nocturnal lemurs aren't thin on the ground here either, with fat-tailed dwarf lemurs, Milne-Edwards sportive lemurs, Danfoss mouse lemurs and Grewcock sportive lemurs on show at night. Look out too for giant (harmless) gorgeous ground boas, yet another endemic to Madagascar. With spectacular caves to visit along with Tsingy limestone formations, mangroves, outstanding coral reefs and pristine beaches, this secluded section of Madagascar has it all.
