Also known as Domergue Reserve, Reniala Park (the mother forest) covers almost 60 hectares. This thorny and baobab forest is now a protected eco-tourism zone. It allows to observe many unique species that live in the Malagasy bush. If you want to observe the wildlife, you will have to be early because it will be the only time of the day where you will have the opportunity to greet the Capuchin of Madagascar, one of the smallest birds of the island.
The duration of this ballad can be very variable. It all depends on what you want to see. The classic ballad is largely zebu charrette and will be devoted to trees and medicinal plants. The forest plays an important role for Vezo fishermen, because it is there that we find all the raw materials to build their canoes: balsa, delonix and baobab. Some plants even allow to intoxicate the fish when the fishing is too bad! The highlight of the visit will undoubtedly be the meeting with the ancestor of the forest, a baobab of more than 1500 years.
Thematic tours around insects, birds or amphibians can also be organized by the association Reniala, which participates in the conservation of species. The association Reniala is also a center of protection and research on the lemurs seized by the authorities. The rates range between 10,000 and 15,000 AR.
