How to see a lemur in Antananarivo
As everybody knows, Madagascar is the island of lemurs, and you don't have to roam the woods to see most species of these funny animals.

Tsimbazaza Zoo, located in the capital, accommodates several lemur species, including the rarest species and other unique animals and birds.

Old legends tell that souls of the deceased move into lemurs. In ancient times, the whole island was at these animals' disposal.

You can watch the lemurs at Tsimbazaza Zoo, and, if you are lucky enough to find a cooperating park worker, you may have an opportunity to treat these blue-eyed fidgets to honey. Here you can see the tiniest lemur in the world, which is found in the wild more and more rarely.

All of them being unique in their own way, these acrobats don't sit still even for a minute, their activity is at its highest in the evening.

Where to do?
