Less well-known but equally as spectacular as some of the more popular locations in Madagascar, Daraina is home to the golden-crowned sifaka.

One of the world’s rarest primates, this lemur is found here and nowhere else. Other lemurs are seen with regularity, including crowned lemurs and Sanford’s brown lemurs, and even occasionally the aye-aye.

Undulating hills covered with deciduous and semi-evergreen forest make Daraina one of richest and most ecologically sensitive areas in the north of the island.
