The Night Tour Was Not That Impressive
Feb 2020
We walked up and down the trail in darkness with just our guide's torch, Maybe we came the wrong season, we didn't see any lemurs, fossa (?) or any animals. We saw a baby elephant-ear chameleon. The trip has to end shortly because our guide was stung by something on the wooden-rail and was in pain. Something I was worried it might happen to us when we went on a night tour.

Beautiful walk!
Nov 2019
I really enjoyed my night walk (the forest one ) and my day time walk. On the day walks, we saw brown lemurs and the indri indri up close. We saw a parson's chameleon and several leaf tailed geckos. On the night walk, we saw a small species of chameleon, leaf tailed chameleon, nocturnal lemur (I can't remember the name) and a mouse lemur.

Excellent park
Oct 2019 • Solo
Well maintained trails really help the trek through the forest to see the creatures.

Lemur of course are the stars but do not overlook the other critters. Frogs, insects, chameleon and even a snake.

Three hours just about wore me out but so worth it.

Do not miss this one.

Excellent community park that can be visited at night
Sep 2019
We visited this park twice, once for a night (well evening as it was dark around 6 pm) hike and once in the morning. Both times we spotted (well more precisely, our guide) several different types of lemur. The guide was also patient enough, as a result we saw the mouse, sport lemur (both at night), and diadem sifaka and the Indri (during the day hike) from very nearby. The guide we had was excellent. A real advantage is that the night hike is in the park, not along the road as is the case for all the national parks.

Great opportunity to see Indri Indri
Sep 2019
This community reserve was set up about ten years ago both to promote environmental protection and also to provide local community with jobs. The advantage is that you are virtually guaranteed to see Madagascar´s largest lemur, Indri Indri. This animal is not only fascinating to watch but also to listen too. Guides have tapes of their extraordinary "language" to which they respond "live". It is quite a spectacle.
There is also a sacred tree the only one of its kind in Madagascar which has become a place of pilgrimage to devoted people who asked a wish, and got it granted, whereupon they have to sacrifice a zebu.

Best park we visited!
Jul 2019 • Family
We visited this communities park three times, once at night, once in the morning, and once in the afternoon, and it delivered amazing safari experiences! We saw many different types of lemurs, chameleons, and frogs. We heard indri singing, saw camouflaged chameleons and the smallest chameleon. It is very close to Mantadia Forest Lodge, where we stayed, so we managed to pop in for a couple of hours walk on travel days. Thierry, our guide, was very knowledgeable and speaks excellent English. The park also has a very nice shop. All fees directly benefit the local community, so it felt like responsible tourism as well.

Excellent Park run by the community
Jun 2019 • Couples
We visited VOI MMA in the afternoon after visiting Andasibe National Park. This park is in the same area of the national park but is run by the local community. The park has less tourist so is a very quiet place to spot wildlife. We saw different types of lemurs, chamaleons and geckos.
We would recommend to anyone in the area to visit this park. It just takes a couple of hours and is much less crowded than the national park.

Wonderful green forest
May 2019 • Family
Loved the greenery. Lush green forest. We saw the Indri indri lemurs and the common brown lemurs. But just the walk through the first was wonderful.
We had a local guide who had good knowledge of the flora and fauna of the area.
The park has well marked out pathways to take you through the jungle.
