Camp Tattersalli, also known as White Lemur Camp, is a nature lodge in the Daraina commune in northern Madagascar. The camp is named after the Golden-crowned sifaka lemur, scientifically named Propithecus tattersalli which can be found in the forest by the camp. Other lemur species in the area include the Greater dwarf lemur, Amber mountain fork-marked lemur, Daraina sportive lemur and the Aye-aye, although it can be difficult to spot.
