Zombitse National Park, Madagascar

Zombitse National Park is a 36,300 hectare transitional forest and sandstone domes, creating a unique habitat with its own suite of special species found nowhere else.

Birders will be keen not to miss this unusual habitat, as it offers the chance to glimpse one of Madagascar’s rarest endemics, Appert’s greenbul, confined entirely to this forest. Other bird highlights include giant coua, crested coua, Madagascar crested ibis and Madagascar cuckoo-roller.

Another rare treat here is the stunning Standing's day gecko, ornately patterned with fine flecks of blue and green; it's one of the largest living species of day gecko and is limited to this tiny part of Madagascar. Spot them here on the trunks of some of the country's finest baobabs. Nocturnal forays might produce sightings of some very special lemurs: fat-tailed dwarf lemur, pale fork-marked lemur and Coquerel's giant mouse lemur.

A really unique wildlife and overall nature experience this is a really amazing park. It is perfect for those who have a keen interest in the small things which make the natural world work - with completely unique and absolutely mesmirising birdlife and the rare Standing's day gecko, you can't go far wrong with this park for the real safari keen. A wildlife-mad safari goer's destination for sure.
