Loved the walks here including the night walk. Several sightings of lemurs, chameleons and frogs thanks to the great guides. They are armed with plenty of information and facts to keep interest alive plus so good at enabling all group members get good viewpoints for taking photos.

Loved the hiking, some exhausting, but exhilarating when you find the Lemurs. Must get off the beaten path to find them. Nearby Lemur Island is awesome. Maria an excellent local guide.

We went there early in the morning hoping to see the famous Indri Indri and got to see so much more! We saw a lot of Lemurs which are living freely in this huge forrest. At last we found the Indri Indri (which the most of you may know from The animation movie Madagascar) and it was so cool to... More

Nothing beats hearing their call. It does concern me that every guide has the call on their mobile phone and uses it to set the indri off. It must push their stress hormones through the roof every time they think an enemy is coming into their territory (the indri, not the guides :-)). There's a very nice information centre at... More

We like both of them, Andasibe and Mantadia. We spent one day in each of these two NP. Andasibe has more animals, while Mantadia is more wild and still under development. We had a good guide called Fidi(sounds like this), he is patient and well-knowledged, ask for him if you need a good guide there.

This is an amazing national park, with awesome wildlife viewing opportunities. The guides are great, and keep in touch with each other to ensure that their groups get to see the critters they came for. In addition to numerous lemur species, including an up-close and personal concert of singing indris, we had great looks at a nesting collared nightjar, nesting... More

I decided at the last minute to visit this park... I was in Mada for work and thought I might only have time for Lemur Park close to Tana. This was definitely worth the drive! We left at 6am and reached the park by 8:45am. Some of the lemur species take a "sieste" midday and most diurnal species are most... More

Excellent trails. Not too difficult. Plenty of guides and not too expensive. Good chances of seeing different species of lemur, particularly the Indri

I am certain that there is nowhere else on Earth quite like it. You are required to have a guide but unlike most parks around the world this is actually a good thing. Our guide took us not only off the beaten path but also off any kind of path whatsoever! We spent most of the day trekking up and... More

We came here with Ramartours and they recommended a bird guide named Luc to show us around. He was fantastic at finding rare species of birds and also knew exactly where to find lots of different lemurs. He speaks perfect English and knows the English names of all the birds. It would be hard to find a more suitable guide... More
