“Maybe it was because of the rain ...”
Reviewed November 2, 2013 via mobile

It was great to be wished welcome by a Lemur at the shoulder and we took a lot of pictures because this was our first introdiction to the lemurs, but after travelling around at Madagascar the lemurisland seems to bee a kind of animal exibition.
Take a tour in the National park instead.

“Poor lemurs”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

The poor lemurs shut in on Lemur island have a poor quality of life, think how much space they have in the wild and here they are squashed on a tiny island with only feeding by staff keeping them alive. Better to see them in the wild

“Lemur Island is worth doing.”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

A good way to see the lemurs you've been chasing all over the island up close. They will climb all over you so if you don't like that idea, better not go over!

“Had lunch here”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

We had lunch at Vakona before visiting the Lemur island. Lunch was OK but not excellent and the setting was great. Vakona is a good location if you intend going to Mantadia but it has very much a resort feel rather than that of a forest lodge.

“Guilty Pleasure”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

Glad we went here at the end of our holiday. A Cheats way to see Lemurs - a private island at a luxury hotel full of tame lemurs - brown, grey bamboo and one black&white ruffed. The brown ones are the most cheeky - they are hand fed bananas by the keepers and happy to jump on your head and shoulders. Bit like a zoo but great fun and a good opportunity to see the details of these creatures you have been craning your neck to see miles up in the tree tops and get some close up photos.
