Situated in the South of Morondava, the park of Kirindy Mite is an intersection between the forest of the West and the South of Madagascar. The park was created in 1997 and since, several tourists come in the park to observe its flora and fauna in the diversified landscape.
In total, we count 11 species of mammals, 47 species of birds, 23 species of reptiles and 50 species of fishes located in there. Concerning flora, there are 7 species of mangroves, 5 species of rosewoods, 3 species of baobabs and 182 species of ligneous.
One of the tourist assets of Kirindy Mite is the fact that this park presents at the same time the characteristics of the western forest and of the south of Madagascar. So, on 72 000ha of surface, we can find there at the same time the primary dry forest and the western mangrove of the west as much as the savannas of the South.
Besides, the park is constituted by sandy dunes, by bay, by beautiful beach as well as fascinating small islands that you should not miss during for your journey in the West of Madagascar.
