A beautiful and lush national park. With plenty of appealing wildlife in the form of different species of lemurs and the not so appealing ones in the form of leeches!! But the fairly challenging footpaths through the forest are worth it when rewarded (if you are lucky) with a sighting of the Indri Indri, the largest lemurs on the island.... More

The Indi Lemurs are amazing between their noise and black-and-white beauty and not shy! Great collection of unusual birds. Stepped on a Tree Boa, very large but did not bite

You need a guide who will show you the lemurs and chameleons. Fantstic to hear the haunting calls of the Indri

A spacious park, you can take a tour of several hours. We heard several groups of lemurs calling each other in the morning. The guides really do their best to show lemurs up close and personal. To my taste they tried too hard: they kept calling each other on their mobiles, shouted to each other, made lemur sounds and scared... More

Had a hike at the national park during my visit to Madagascar in July 2015. Wanted to see lemurs in the wild and was not disappointed at all. Managed to see 4 different species of lemurs in the park, including the famous Indri Lemurs. Please bring at least a 300mm zoom lens to take great pictures of the lemurs in... More

The Andasibe part of the park is busier than the Mantadia section. There are good sightings of Lemurs, birds and the occasional mammal and reptile in both, but Andasibe is more accessible and hence there are more people. If you can cope with a horrendous bumpy road, visit the Montadia Park. Less people and you feel that you are truly... More

This whole area is great for wildlife. You must hire a local guide or you cannot enter the parks. The local guides are very knowledgeable and helpful. They will go to the end of the world to find you what you are looking for. The parks are full of many species of birds, lemurs amphibians and reptiles. Many of the... More

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
