We visited here the day after arriving in Antananarivo while we were planning our trip. It was a nice introduction to the lemurs and wildlife and you get to see them up close, our guide was really enthusiastic and knowledgable. Downsides were that it is small, it feels staged, nothing like seeing the lemurs in the wild but easy to... More

If you love lemurs and are eager to see them, I suggest you visit this park as soon as you arrive in Madagascar. It is small, the guides are great, and the lemurs live in a semi-wild environment (apparently they are recued) but still close enough that you can see them and take photos. No feeding or touching, which is... More

I visited early one morning in midAugust and was the only one in the par. I had a very knowledgeable and pleasant English speaking guide (Hanya) who showed me all the different species of Lemur and explained all the differences. A tip is appreciated (20k?) . The park is run by an NGO and the Lemurs are well cared for... More

Had half a day to spare before having to leave for the airport and had 'done' Antananarivo' . Pleasantly surprised by this Lemur Park. The guide was friendly and interesting and the surroundings pleasing being built on a hillside adjacent to the river. Lemurs free to wander at will.

This is truly a sanctuary. For the lemurs as well as the tourists. There is no reason to stay in Tana at all! But if you find yourself here, then this is one place to escape the desperation, albeit temporarily. The poverty and the destruction, or loss of civilisation, is well on display en route. The lemurs are habituated and... More

Depending on traffic it can take some time to get to the Lemur Park. If you have a short amount of time in Madagascar or want to see more lemurs it is a great place to visit. The lemurs are able to roam freely in the park, but are habituated and so you are able to get close for some... More

A private park and small but excellent - worth a visit. We needed a day of sightseeing before heading to the airport. I was thrilled by the care of the lemurs and the helpful staff. Great for photography. The view from the little restaurant is lovely. Modest food.

A nice trip to the lemur park. Really wanted to see the lemurs, and my wish has been granted. If you are on a quick visit to Antananarivo for personal business, you can spare a few moments to see the lemurs at the park.

I recommend a quick visit to Lemurs Park while visiting the capital. Crazy number of King Julien will make you happy for sure. But be careful: if they like you, they'll jump on you, follow you and it'll be hard to get rid of them -I didnt mind, but apparently they tend to bite. Don't worry though, friendly guides make...

Hire a good reliable driver and a 4x4 - worth the trip. They deserve support for what they are doing. But it is a centre to resettle lemur, so they are not 'wild'
