Welcome to Perinet Nature Reserve

Perinet Nature Reserve

Madagascar's most visited reserve, the Perinet Nature Reserve boasts a large variety of flora and fauna for visitors to view, such as the endangered Indri, the largest and most vocal of the lemurs, known for their song, an eerie mix between sirens and wailing, which can be heard in the morning. With verdant green forests Set in lush montane rainforest, a trip to Perinet makes a wonderful excursion for travellers based in Antananarivo. There are also really nice walks and trails to enjoy in the reserve and travellers can appoint a guide to show them around pointing out quirking habits of the native animals.

Information & Facts

3 hours East of Tana
Malagasy is the official language, but French is used in business and government and is widely spoken in the main cities in Madagascar. A few people involved in the tourism industry might be able to speak some English, but it is not widely spoken.

The official currency is the Malagasy ariary (MGA), which has been reintroduced to replace the Malagasy franc. Coins and notes display both currencies, but newer notes display the ariary more prominently than the franc. One ariary is equal to five francs. Foreign currencies can be exchanged at banks and official bureaux de change, but the ariary cannot be changed back into hard currency. Some banks will only accept US dollars or Euro. Travellers cheques can be exchanged at most banks and in major hotels, but some banks refuse to accept them. ATMs are available in Antananarivo. Most major credit cards are starting to be accepted in top hotels and major travel agencies in the capital and other major towns, but have limited usage elsewhere.
