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.

This was a trip for school. We stayed at this national park and went on some of the most amazing hikes and saw some of the most exotic creatures of Madagascar - including the Indri lemurs. It was amazing!

We had heard mixed reviews about Andasibe, ie it was teeming wtih tourists so we decided to spend 2 days in Mantadia and a morning in Andasibe. Good call. Mandadia is a place like no other. Primary rainforest and as it attracted so few visitors (2 other cars) when we were there in April, we had the place to ourselves... More

We stared here from a guide hut, which I believe our walking guide paid for us to enter from. The hut itself had a small shop, the only item we enquired about was a bracelet which was much more expensive than other places we visited. The walk in the rain forest is well managed and it felt very authentic, the... More

We drove all the way to the West of Madagascar to this resort to see.. well no prizes for guessing.. Lemurs, and we were not disappointed. The national park has a very small entrance and does not look very appealing from the outside actually. But walk in and you see that the government is making efforts over having this place... More

Our first routing north eastwards after the capital. We came to terms with the human and social element. We reached the park and stayed at the Vakona Forest Lodge. For me it was the first tropical experience proper back in 2003 as a first call. The park conditions were adequate for european standards but it is humid and thick and... More

If you wish to see and discover the famous Lemurs of Madagascar, then Andasibe is one of the place we can advice. Indeed, in the moring you can go and visit the national reserve of Analamazaotra which is a real tropical rain forest with all the main traits of rain forest in the world with a plus that Analamazaotra present...

Had time off and went to visit the park, what a great place, i only spent a few hours there but was very very happy. absolutely beautiful and natural. The park was clean and well maintained. The place was not a typical touristy place ( i was there out of season, so it might be different in season). Really worth... More
