Comprising 810 hectares of pristine rainforest and montane forest, the Perinet or Andasibe Special Reserve constitutes the southern section of the Andasibe-Mantadia National Park. Among the kaleidoscope of wildlife found in the reserve, it is the best place to see the Indri Indri, the largest of the lemur family, which stands roughly three feet high and has big, teddy-bear-like ears. Endemic to this part of the world, the Indri is critically endangered, with only hundreds left – however, most visitors to Perinet see Indris, and if you don’t see them, you will certainly hear their distinctive calls. Discover the eleven other species of lemur in the park, spot a variety of birds, find hidden rare orchids and try to catch a glimpse of the incredibly unusual satanic leaf-tailed gecko.
