Kirindy is the best place to see the giant jumping rat as well as the Fossa (Madagascar's largest predator), and you can also witness various spiny tenrecs, birds and reptiles aplenty. The diverse flora includes three of the six endemic Malagasy baobabs. 
After exploring Kirindy we head north and onto Tsimafana where we take the ferry across to Belo sur Tsiribihina.
