    Great place to learn about & see lemurs up close
    I decided to visit Lemurs Park with a couple of new friends I met during my week-long trip in Western Madagascar. Our flight from Morondava to Antananarivo arrived early in the morning so we just decided to head straight to Lemurs Park from the airport. Having already seen lemurs in the wild in Kirindy Forest and in Tsindy de Bemaraha NP, this place gave us a chance to see the lemurs up close. All the lemurs here were rescued & are protected, as they freely move & roam around the entire park. The park is very well-maintained and safe for the lemurs, and the guided tour was very informative. We also ended up having lunch here as they have a restaurant that serves really good food. Lemurs Park is only 1.5h away from Tana depending on traffic, and the guided tour around the entire park took about 3hrs, but it’s definitely worth a visit.

    Great First Mada Adventure
    While it is a bit difficult to get to because of the traffic, it was the best way to start our adventures in Madagascar. The park is well run, the guides are excellent and the up close looks at the lemurs is excellent. We did the pick up/lunch and tour and it was worth every penny.

    Lemurs abound
    Highly recommend this reserve. Easy drive from Tana and once there you walk along comfortable paths with a guide experiencing multiple encounters with varieties of lemur. Easy viewing and great experience.

    Great opportunity to see lemur’s up close if you are short of time
    I wasn’t sure sure about going to this place at first but it ended up being a very good experience. It is indeed a bit pricy but they are doing a good job minding the lemurs. According to them, these are lemurs saved from the pet trade, with the babies ending up being born in captivity. They cannot be released in a wild, hence this park. At the end of the day, it is a great opportunity to see semi wild lemurs up close. I was in Tana for a work trip and did not have time to go deep in the forest. If I was on a month long tourist trip, I would probably skip the park. However if you are short of time, it’s a great experience. The guide was very friendly, knowledgeable and spoke excellent English and French. Food was average. Bring cash Bring cash

This was a great little park to walk around, where the Lemurs are free to roam. Although there is a fence around the park - this is to keep the humans out, rather than the Lemurs in - they can leave if they want (but they choose to stay).

There is a wide variety of native trees & plants for those people that are also interested the native flora of Madagascar.

The park itself is well maintained, with very knowledgeable & friendly staff. The pathways are easy to navigate.

Depending on traffic, the park is 1-1.5 hours (25km) from Antananarivo. A comfortable trip if you only have half a day available.

Well the parc itself is well undertaken, but this is an instant gratification for those who are in a rush to see lemurs in Madagascar. As a wildlife explorer an lovers, this is not really my cup of tea. Somewhere in my inner, i feel bad about those Lemurs fed with vegetable, (normaly a lemurs wont eat those things it spoilled their natural instinct and they will lose their furry). As it is a reserve they have to be hand feed but any way this is more like a zoo visit.

For those who are expecting a close look and a close photo to diverse lemurs, this can be a place to fullfill what is missing.

tourists find everything positive, even if it is not. this park is totally overpriced and offers very little. most animals are imports from other countries and on top of it the guide is not includet and expects a handsome tip. go and visit the zoo at home!

I have been to Madagascar twice, 2004 and 2014. The first was on a private tour with a guide who took four people. The second was with our favorite expedition company, Zegrahm, a company that went under with COVID. Both trips were excellent. The lemurs are fabulous, but they are hard to see. Do not miss the Indri lemurs who howl every morning. You have to climb in a forest to find them, but you will never forget the sound!

The park was beautifully set out and the animals seemed very well cared for, given they had all had backgrounds of being owned and cared for suboptimally before they came.

Natural behaviours were encouraged and the animals were not performing tricks or asked to sit with guests.
Knowledgeable guide gave lots of background about flora of Madagascar

This is a great little reserve quite some distance out of Antananarivo. It has been set up very naturally with a great little shop and restaurant and then the park itself. One has a private guide and the whole meander takes a few hours. Educating, fun and interesting and well worth the support of tourists. Our kids did not manage to see one single Lemur in the wild, the entire holiday so we made our way to this place on the last day. It was great and truly enjoyed by all. We recommend this place for a visit for more information about Lemurs, up close and personal in a wild environment and if not for that reason, at least to support a very worthy cause. The food is fantastic (for Madagascar) and portions are generous with ice cold Cokes. We managed to get a wheelchair around the place with a fair amount of difficulty but everyone was most helpful. The more questions one asks of the guide, the more animated he becomes on his topic with loads to share. We must say, our guide was extremely knowledgeable and had a good command of the English language. We were especially pleased that they are integrating Lemurs of all types as best they can with a "no-touch" approach; everything on the Lemur's terms. They are fed at various stations up in the trees and bamboo so it is great to observe them behaving naturally and free. Some are more curious than others and will come down to take a closer look at you. The quieter and stiller one is, the closer they come. No petting or feeding is allowed.

So if you have kids or haven't seen a Lemur and enjoy a good walk, take a taxi there and be prepared to spend half a day gently meanderingi up and down the pathways enjoying this special place. Experience a good part of the essence of Madagascar!

It is wiser to spend your money eslewhere. The entrence fee of 20'000 Ar is a ripoff! The food in the Restaurant is expensive. And the Lemurs just sit and wait for the next tourist. Its a place for lazy tourists, which just want to see everything Madagascar has to offer. Please, don't go there!
