Wonderful opportunity to engage with the lemurs.
Overall rating

The Palmarium Reserve is a private reserve on the Pangalanes Canal, and it's like a little bit of paradise.

On what feels like a tropical island, we had private bungalows with a water view through the trees and daily visits from the lemurs. The staff were incredibly knowledgeable about the local flora and fauna, and were a very friendly and welcoming team. The facilities were all very clean and tidy, well suited to the environment, with good services. The range of food options at meal times were limited in choice, but made up for that in quality. Absolutely delicious!

You were free to explore the grounds at your leisure, there were lemurs, chameleons, birds and beautiful flora to be seen. The lemurs were quite accustomed to people, but not excessively so. This meant that they were comfortable to come close by and were happy for you to watch them. Sometimes they would even sit on your shoulder and accept a pat. It was an absolutely amazing experience to be so close to the lemurs without being on a time limit and in such a relaxed environment.

Visiting the Palmarium Reserve was a highlight from my Madagascan adventure and I would recommend it in a heart beat!
