Seeing this Species
Marojejy National Park, between Camp Morojejia (Camp 2) and Camp Simpona (Camp 3) offers probably the best chance. The Bradt Guide offers: "Morojejia is a 5-6 hour walk from the Sambava-Andapa road, Simpona a further 3 hours. There are well-maintained rustic huts with bunk beds, toilets and showers at each camp."
More information is available at the Park website.
