Introducing Parc National de Ranomafana
Trekking through Parc National de Ranomafana’s 40, 000 hectares of misty and magical cloud forest is a soul-soothing experience. The air always feels fresh and cool (it can rain anytime), and the scenery is spectacular. The landscape consists of odd-shaped rolling hills, thick with dark-green vegetation, and numerous small streams that turn into waterfalls as they plummet off slate-grey rocks and into the rushing Namorona River below. Ranomafana was set up in 1986 to protect two species of rare lemur – the golden bamboo lemur and the greater bamboo lemur. Today it’s one of Madagascar’s most popular parks, with fabulous forest walks, lemur-spotting and excellent tourist facilities, including a posh new resort and a well-organised info centre.
