We drove all the way to the West of Madagascar to this resort to see.. well no prizes for guessing.. Lemurs, and we were not disappointed. The national park has a very small entrance and does not look very appealing from the outside actually. But walk in and you see that the government is making efforts over having this place... More

Our first routing north eastwards after the capital. We came to terms with the human and social element. We reached the park and stayed at the Vakona Forest Lodge. For me it was the first tropical experience proper back in 2003 as a first call. The park conditions were adequate for european standards but it is humid and thick and... More

If you wish to see and discover the famous Lemurs of Madagascar, then Andasibe is one of the place we can advice.

All types of hikes from an easy few miles to long treks. A good guide makes all the difference as far as information about plants, insects, reptiles, etc. and being able to spot everything that is well hidden. Seeing the lemurs in the wild and hearing them call is unforgettable

If there is one park to visit, it is this one. Very rich in Lemur watching as well as chameleons and birds. Although the lemurs are wild, they have got used to people and hence do not disappear when you are around and hence have time to see, film or photograph them without disturbing their wild life. Our guide was... More

I did two 4 hour tours with a guide. You have to be prepared to walk through all terrrains if you really want to see everything but it is worth it. Get up early as 'siesta time' for animals starts at 11am.

Get here really early in the morning to hear the haunting sounds of the Indri lemur. I have visited a Madagascar many times and always visit this National Park. You are always guaranteed to see several species of lemur. There is also a great restaurant and you can also stay overnight within the grounds and possibly see the nocturnal lemurs... More
