We got to Andasibe early in the morning and as soon as we got out of the car we could hear lemurs singing. Our guide was Mary who'd been recommended to us and she was great. Friendly, really knowledgeable and experienced and spoke excellent English. She stopped and pointed out interesting trees and insects (including loads of huge spiders, be... More

Got a great guide who spotted all 4 species of lemurs living in the park. My first jungle trek, and I was not disappointed. Priceless !

My husband and I spent a few days of our honeymoon in Andasibe in search of lemurs and other wildlife. This is such a beautiful part of a stunning country. We spent several days hiking in different areas of the forest - including day and evening ventures to see daytime and nocturnal lemurs. Our guide Mary was wonderful and so... More

We visited park during the morning when is best possibility to see lemurs closer, because in the afternoon they are hiding high in the threes. Here u can find Indri , black and white big lemur without tail. It is really the biggest we sow during our travel through Madagascar and one of the most beautiful. Due to my opinion... More

Did a 4-hour trail with guide, Roger, in Andasibe NP. We spotted the most number of lemurs and insects within the shortest time. The highlights were spotting diademed sifakas and indris up close and multiple times. Our guide Roger was very knowledgeable and friendly.

This is the only rainforest where you can hear and see the crying Indri lemurs, with their haunting calls. That alone is reason to go. Also, it's an easy jaunt from Tana (about 4 hours driving, so you can go and spend 3 days, 2 nights and have plenty of time to explore). With 3+ days you can spend one... More

Mantadia is vast and you will only trek through a tiny bit it. This is much more of an unspoiled, ancient forest with a few paths than a touristy park. This means that the lemurs can stay away from the visitors, and they really can take a long time to find, but in the end we managed to find a... More

There are several different routs at Andasibe-Mantadia but I wanted a long walk with maximum opportunities for seeing wildlife and I got it. My great driver/guide Parany arranged an excellent local guide for my Andasibe-Mantadia excursion. His name was Fidson and he was absolutely the best. To my greatest delight, our walk lasted 6 hours. We watched and listened to... More

You can't rate this any lower than "five" surely? It is a forest full of lemurs and other cool creatures, including indri. We were told all guides are very good there, but I am not so sure. Whilst our guide was a relatively nice bloke, who has been a guide for 25 years allegedly, he seemed a somewhat one-trick pony... More
