Phone and internet service is now available at Bezà Mahafaly through a partnership between local communities, Madagascar National Parks, ESSA-Forests and  Orange Madagascar, one of the leading phone companies in Madagascar. This greatly improves the accessibility of  Bezà Mahafaly, especially for local and foreign researchers and tourists.  The development of enhanced communication was widely anticipated and very welcome, and is beneficial not only for the Reserve, but also for the surrounding communities.
