The sifikas hang out at the information desk. Yes, if you are into birding, go for a hike, but for the lemurs, just stay there. Early morning and afternoon they come and eat the flowers on the trees.

The birding here was great. Also some lemurs and many reptiles. Had a couple of lovely walks in the dry forest with our very good guide. Restaurant was a bit pricey but the food was good.
