We loved this park, especially the Indris and the conservation efforts to create corridors of natural habitat. Other highlights were the night walks, leaftailed geckos and chameleons. The paths are really well laid out not too strenuous and show a good section of the forest. We especially liked the trail from Parc V.O.I.M.M.A a little out of Andisibe past Mikalo,... More

It was a beautiful park teeming with life. Lots of frogs, chameleons and lemur. Well worth the visit but don't try to do it without a guide - it is big and the animals are well hidden if you don't know what to look and listen for.

There is so few places left in Madagascar where the original forrest is still intact. It sound impossible that 85-90% of the original forrest is gone, but if you fly over Madagascar, you will notice that is is mostly brown/yellow and not green. We only had one tour in the park, but would have loved to explore further and spend... More

Great park easily reached from Tana in a few hours. Guides are available at the park, actually they are mandatory which is good to provide employment for locals. Don't miss it!

My boyfriend and I were on a mission to see some lemurs and this park satisfied us beyond expectations! We saw and touched 4 species of lemurs, plus checked out some huge crocodiles, a snake, chameleon, turtles, and wild ducks.

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.
