Lokobe Reserve is split into two sections: a northern part that is open to the public and which has some short circular routes along which you can see and explore the rich wealth of trees, plants and wildlife the reserve has to offer; and a second part that serves as a self-contained reserve accessible only to scientists and researchers. This second section, however, is on its way to becoming Madagascar's next national park and will eventually be open to the public.
Lokobe is one of the most impressive places in Madagascar. Its Sambirano Forest provides a habitat for various of the island's endemic species – such as the black lemur – and many different types of palm tree, as well as chameleons, boas, and a multitude of tree and plant species. The reserve can be reached by boat from Hell-Ville, by dugout canoe from Ambatozavavy (expect the journey to take around twenty minutes), or by the road that leads from Hell-Ville, which involves a journey of about an hour.
