Planning a visit to the Berenty Private Reserve.
Fortunately, Berenty can be visited all year round. In summer, however, temperatures of over 40°C are reached, especially from November to February. Heavy thunderstorms can also spoil a visit to the park. In winter, milder temperatures prevail with very little rainfall. The conditions to visit the reserve are very good and adapted to the needs of tourists. The reserve management also operates the Berenty Lodge, where travelers can spend the night and organizes the Transfer between Fort Dauphin and the reserve. Since this good infrastructure attracts many visitors, the reserve has unfortunately lost its natural character. Especially the lemurs have become accustomed to the large influx of visitors and the wide, well-paved paths make you think you are in a zoo instead of a nature reserve. Nevertheless, visiting the reserve is a rewarding experience. However, the prices for entrance and transfer are quite high compared to other parks.
