We had visited this park for a 3 hours ride with a guide; wa had seen and heard the indri communication (that is amazing) and seen the green lake. Must be visited!

Our excellent guide William showed us around - plenty of Lemurs to see - Brown Lemurs, Indri, Diademed Sifaka and bamboo lemurs. Parts of the forest were relatively busy with other visitors, so felt a bit touristy, but plenty of wildlife to observe. Mantadia National Park much quieter and also well worth a visit.

Andasibe Reserve is a great place to see and hear Indri, in particular. It is secondary rainforest, with various introduced species. The terrain is generally not steep. Mantadia, on the other hand is primary rainforest, with a greater variety of wildlife. it is about 1.5 hours from Andasibe on a rough road. Trails are steep and can be slippery in... More

Here you can hear and see the amazing indri, the largest lemur of Madascar. There are also beautiful diademed sifakas. The walk through the rainforest is not too demanding. Bring a poncho since it often rains.

We were expertly guided by 'John' who kept us away from the crowds "you will see an Indri but we will do that later" and was an excellent birder while very good with our 3 sub 12yo kids - an unusual combination! It is definitely worth seeing, and hearing the Indri, and well worth a visit for that alone -

The guides are well trained and very good at finding the Indri. Find the right guide and they will show you chameleons, numerous birds and geckos.

We had several treks in the forest led by 'John' one of the rangers. He was brilliant, found all sorts of insects for us, leaf tailed gecko, Indris Indris, Golden lemurs, mouse lemurs, bamboo lemurs, chameleons etc. John loves his job and the forest, he goes out early trying to locate where he thinks animals will be before taking people...

Indri, Insre, Indri ... You just have to see and here them. There is also a family of Diademed Sifaka that have been recently introduced to the park, as well as several other species of lemur.

Not only is the National park full to the brim with insects, birds and all kinds of animals, the rainforest is beautifully preserved and we felt so relaxed there. Guides were friendly, helpful and didn't seem to miss anything.

If you can choose your guide, ask for Maurice. He is a very considerate, caring person who just loves guiding in the park. We felt that Maurice went out of his way to help us explore the park both day and night. We did manage to get up close to Golden Lemurs which was just so amazing. See these Lemurs... More
