The Oronjia Forest is located on a rugged peninsula that guards the entrance of Diego’s celebrated harbour and provides spectacular seas views.

The Forest has been recently designated as a new protected area on account of its highly diverse and rare fauna and flora.
The site also contains relicts from a long and rich military history.

The protected area is being managed by a partnership including the Malagasy government, Missouri Botanical Garden and the local community. We welcome researchers, volunteers and visitors.
