A small private botanical park, this extremely well-run place is worth a visit whenever you are in Antananarivo. Personally, I'd go at the end of a trip rather than the begining as you might get the impression that all the national parks are this good. The lemurs are semi-domesticated - you can get close but still can't touch, except when... More

Worthwhile visit. The guide was very knowledgable and I learned so much about the various species of lemurs. You really get up close and personal with the lemurs. It is really a wonderful experience and beautiful parc

It was an hour to hour and half drive from town . They have 9 Lemur Species (we saw all 9). We had good photo opportunities. Our english speaking guide Marc was very knowledgeable. The paths are not wheelchair friendly, however they made a plan to lift the chair to a spot where Lemurs came up close. Remember to book... More

Lemurs' Park (known locally as Réserve de Lémuriens et Parc botanique) is a small botanical park of about 5 hectares with a tourist shop and restaurant. It is near Ambatomirahavavy, 22Km west of Antananarivo, midway between Tana and the airport on the main road NB1. The trail is fairly short and easy to follow, with a well laid out path... More

I liked to see lemurs in small groups - free, but yet near enough to observe details. The place is lovely arranged and lemurs treated carefully.

If you miss seeing lemurs in the wild, make sure you have a visit to the Lemur Park. It only takes about 1.5 hours to walk around at a slow pace and get good photos, but well worth it. These lemurs were all confiscated pets and even though they aren't in their natural habitat, they are now in something close... More

With an afternoon free, we visited Lemur Park and had a wonderful time. The setting was beautiful and very natural with the river serving as a barrier on one side. It was a nice and easy walk along well maintained paths. Our guide a young woman knew all about the lemurs, chameleons, and plants. The lemurs were free range, and... More

Loved the great guided tour by such a knowledgable guy. Lemurs abounded all over and were a delight to see. Lovely natural home for rescued animals. Well worth a visit.

We hired a car and driver for the one hour drive to the Lemurs Park from Tana. We arrived at 10am and met our guide Becol. Becol spoke excellent English and provided us with an extremely knowledgeable tour of the Park (the included the lemurs and information on the different types of plants in the park). There were nine types... More

While you can't touch the animals it's interesting to watch them in a natural habitat. The surrounding countryside is also beautiful. Our guide was able to show us around and spoke good English. During the week call ahead if you plan to eat at the restaurant. The traditional food was good but limited selection. We stopped along the road and... More
