The national parks of Madagascar are truly amazing. I hired an English speaking guide and went for a 2 hour night walk and a 6 hour day hike in the rain forest. Saw lots of lemurs, reptiles, insects in the rainforest.

We did the 5 hour day walk and the night walk here. The day walk was only a little walking and mostly spent time looking at and photographing the various lemurs, sifakas and indris. It does tend to rain and is quite damp and although the paths are good, you will probably walk through dense forest to get near the... More

Enjoyed the trek through the park enormously, both the day and the night walks, and saw plenty of animals. However, the part is in danger and most of it is secondary forest. While walking in search of Indri we heard human noise and the sound of wood saws - not the sound one wants to hear anywhere near a NP... More

I only walked in the Andasibe NP because of time. It is a secondary rainforest whereas the mantadia is primary rainforest, so the jungle itself is not that impressive. However there are 5 or 6 species of lemur in Andasibe and only 1 in Mantadia. So if it's lemurs you want you shouldn't skip Andasibe. I also think it is... More

The park is nice. The guides know where to take you so you can see the lemuurs. The lemuurs are many. I stood in the forest and was at times surrounded by lemuurs jumping around from tree to tree. Very impressive. Guido spoke English well.

This is quite a drive from Tana, but it is most worthwhile. We arrived the previous evening and were up at dawn for our visit to Analamazaotra (Andasibe National Park). It was a long walk (4.5 hours though not terribly strenuous) but very worthwhile. Our guide (Edwin, Edvin?) was knowledgable about the flora/fauna and was able to locate 4 species... More

The forest is beautiful, and our guide was quite knowledgeable about the history of the forest, the flora and fauna, he tried hard to be sure that we were able to see interesting bits of both. He also shared stories and history of Gaskara. If you go to Madagascar, you should take the time to go to Andasibe. The lemurs... More

Firstly, it's not 3 but 5 hours to get there but it's worth the trip. Our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful during a 4 hour hike to see all 4 species. My bucket list - to hear the Indri call - was accomplished in the first hour. Hauntingly beautiful. Going off season helped as I can imagine arriving along... More

We visited Andasibe NP and Mantadia NP with a fantastic guide named Hermann (English name)/ Bary (Malagasy name). Both parcs are great, but I think the guide makes the difference, that's why this review is more about him (He's the best guide we had in 4 weeks Madagascar). Hermann is a a guide for 15 year and is really passionate... More

Seeing Lemurs is as much a matter of luck as anything. In one morning's walk we saw four species of lemurs, and very up-close. It was incredible.
