We visited both the Mantadia and the Andasibe parks. Mantadia is about 35 km from Vakona but the road is so rutted that it took about 1.5 hours each way. Probably because of the road there were far fewer people there than you will see at Andasibe. Walking through the rainforest was a unique experience. We only saw one indri... More

This place was one of the first we went to in Madagascar, and also one of the absolute greatest. You can hear the indri indri from your hut, as well as the other sounds from the rainforest, which is very special. The guides were very helpful and knowledgeable. The tours of the rainforest was fabulous, and i will definately want... More

Seeing Indri singing to each other will remain with me for the rest of my life. In addition, numerous species of other lemurs, reptiles, birds, insects. We had brilliant guides on our group tour. You should have a reasonable level of fitness to enjoy this forest and be able to follow your guides and just how fast the lemurs can... More

Hire Fidi as your guide - tell him you want to be away from any other tourists and that you are fit and prepare to have your mind blown!

It was quiet not many other tourists which was great. The guides are very good and we saw quite a few animals. A group of Indri came right overhead and started calling - it was loud. But, that's what you go for. Wonderful.

This shouldn't be missed when you are in Madagscar. Bring your hiking boots, hire a guide and let nature overwhelm you. We started early in morning to do some excellent birdwatching, and we did see three different species of lemurs. The chirping of the birds and whailing of the lemurs, it's just fascinating

Not worth the visit, too many visitors, lemurs are too high up, night walk dangerous and hard to see anything. Saw Giraffe Weevil one of small five, only excellent viewing.

Our group of six people had two guided nature walks in two different locations in the Park. The first was after a torturous ride for over an hour on absolutely terrible road conditions. What a shame the park fees can't be used to fix the road. It would only require a grader to smooth the horribly eroded road to make... More

The guides are very helpful, passing on information to others. It's refreshing to be able to walk right into the forest off track without fear of deadly snakes etc.
