Each year naturalist observations from our visitors – scientific or amateur – keep updating a significant number of new or described species. Some of them, like the Tahina Spectabilis Palm Tree, led to great excitement in the scientific community.
Anjajavy finds itself amongst the community of the dry deciduous forests of the North-West; an eco-region recognized by the major international organizations of nature conservation as a global critical priority for conservation.
Currently based at the hotel, the centre employs and trains guides, forest rangers and trackers for fire prevention, anti-poaching approaches, environmental awareness, and to combat illegal forest logging.
Anjajavy le Lodge offers high-end eco-tourism as a vector for development. A strong entrepreneurial vision in a socially, traditionally and economically favourable context as well as the relative isolation of the peninsula are both factors in this success. For the last 20 years, the local villages have a continuous development in services to the community.
It is in this context that the creation of an official Protected Area was born on April 17, 2018, following the adoption of a governmental decree for the definitive protection of the Protected Area “Anjajavy” of IUCN V Protected Area (Harmonious Landscape). The total protected area of the Reserve is 9773 ha.
