Are you interested in seeing Ringtailed Lemurs from close up? If so, than is this the park you shouldn't miss. You will be basically surrounded by Lemurs, so close that you could touch them (is forbidden!). My tip: go there in the morning (~8:00am) as...More

The Anja Reserve is situated at a beautiful spot, surrounded by spectacular mountains. There is a nice lake, where we took idyllic pictures with zebus. So already the landscape justifies a stop. In addition, you will see (beside birds, chameleons etc.) also large groups of...More
