The Andasibe-Mantadia National Park, which is only three hours from Antananarivo, will delight young and old alike. Go deep into the forest and discover exceptional nature. Day or night, you will not fail to come across lemurs perched at the top of their trees who will come to greet you…
A unique primary forest
Made up of two separate protected areas: Analamazoatra Special Reserve and Mantadia National Park; Andasibe-Mantadia National Park is only about three hours from the capital. A refuge for many animal and plant species, almost all of the park is made up of a primary forest that has never undergone human modifications. It is therefore not uncommon to come across a multitude of species: lemurs, birds, chameleons, and insects of all kinds.
The climate of the park is quite cool, the average temperature is around 20°C and it rains most of the year. So plan to cover yourself if the weather turns bad. You will find all types of accommodation in the town of Andasibe and around the park, but it is also possible to camp in the Analamazoatra reserve.
This park is perfect for observing endemic species of the island. Many activities are offered, including going on an observation excursion to meet the large endemic bird species of the island. For the more athletic, you can also opt for a trek in the lush forest of the park. You will not fail to go for a dip in the beautiful natural swimming pool in which a waterfall falls, or to admire the sacred fall of the park which contains the secrets of the great cultural traditions of the island.
Go with family or friends
The park has 5 different circuits and the Analamazoatra reserve. They allow you to explore the forest through its giant ferns and its endless vines. You will have the opportunity to see splendid natural pools and incredible waterfalls. But also of course all kinds of animals on the ground and in the trees. So open your eyes wide!
The paradise of lemurs
Andasibe-Mantadia Park is known for being home to the largest lemur in the world: the indri-indri. From its height of 80 cm, it is not uncommon for one of them to come and observe you from the top of its tree. And if you take a morning walk, you will witness the song of the indris through the forest, which is sure to delight the whole family.
