Spent 24 hours at Andasibe to spot for lemur. Wildlife spotting was good, guides work together to share the sightings. Sightings are generally good, but lemur tend to get higher than other primates so it’s harder to photograph without at least a 200mn lens

But throughout the experience couldn’t help but think it wasn’t the rainforest experience I was expecting. I’ve been through rainforest in Congo, Brazil, Indonesia etc and this didn’t come close.

After leaving I found out Andasibe National Park is actually replanted forest which explains why the tree cover seemed so young

So overall I’m a bit conflicted. It’s good to go an try to preserve the wildlife, but also it perfectly captures the problem in Madagascar where the deforestation problem is worse than anywhere I’ve been.

We did two daytime walks in two different sites in this National Park over 2 days. One site did require 4WD cars to access the park through a local small forest village (nice to see), riding over potholes on a clay rough road, the other by tour coach. With the help of amazing local guides, we managed to see quite a bit of wildlife. From the Indri lemurs, a family of sifakas with baby, and the small bamboo lemurs. As well as chameleons, a leaf tailed gecko (very rare), and a few head bobbing tenrecs or hedgehogs. The mist in the mornings also makes for some spectacular photos. The walks were not too strenuous either.

We spent four days here, visiting Mantadia which is up a really rough road, Andasibe itself, and 2 community-run reserves, Mitsinjo and VOI MMA. We saw Indri, Common Brown Lemur, Eastern Grey Bamboo Lemur, Diadem Sifaka and Black and White Ruffed Lemurs, as well as all kinds of chameleons and birds. Our guide was fantastic, and we cannot recommend him highly enough. His name is Hermann Rabarinjanahary (aka Bari) and he is one of the official guides listed in the park information centre. He could spot leaf-tailed geckos (one of the best camouflaged creatures on the planet) from 30m while driving past in a car and seemed to intuit where the lemurs would be, working on the slightest sound or just the weather/ temperature. There are never any guarantees when wildlife spotting, but if it's there, Bari will find it for you!

We came expecting to see lemurs, the literature talks about all the varieties you can see. The road in this park is awful, a 2 hour ride on a semi useable road, many areas tough to get a car thru. Our guide was supposed to be good, but No lemurs! Not a great experience.

This N.P. is a perfect place to spot Indris. As there are many families living here you may have a big chance to see a lot of them. But also the fauna and flora is nice.
