Getting There & Away
From Tana, the best way to reach Andasibe is to take a taxi-brousse to Moramanga first, then another to Andasibe (Ar2000, 1½ hours). Ask the driver to drop you at your hotel. Otherwise, you can take any taxi-brousse along the RN2 for 26km to the Andasibe junction at Antsapanana, then walk or hitch the 3km to the village itself.
If you’re leaving Andasibe, you either have to return to Moramanga first, or wait for a taxi-brousse on the RN2. This can be difficult going east as brousses from Tana tend to be full. If you hire a car or taxi from Tana, keep in mind that you’ll have to leave by 6am in order to hear the indris. If you hear a clickety-clack, it’s the tiny Moramanga–Tamatave passenger train, which passes through Andasibe every Monday and Tuesday.
