Welcome to Réserve Spéciale d'Analamazaotra


There are four organised walking trails, all of which are generally easy going. The easiest, most popular trail is the Circuit Indri 1 (guide for four Ar20,000, about two hours), which includes the main lakes and the territory of a single family of indris. The moderate Circuit Indri 2 (guide for four Ar30,000, three hours) visits the lakes and encompasses the patches of two separate families. The Circuit Aventure (guide for four Ar40,000, four to six hours) does all of the above, plus some more strenuous walking. Join these circuits together for an 8km trail of about six hours. The Palmier Circuit (2km, one to two hours) is specially designed for children and takes in palms, orchids and two indri families.

On the main road between the MNP office and Andasibe is the small Parc des Orchidées, which is at its most attractive in October to December when the orchids are in bloom. By late summer it’s almost completely dried up. There’s no signage so you need a good guide to fully appreciate it.

Highlights of Madagascar

Lemurs, wild landscapes, village culture, beaches — Madagascar might be an island but there’s nothing small about it. For those who like to get remote, this isolated island is packed with wildlife, landscapes, and people you’ll find nowhere else. And everybody loves lemurs! You’ll get to embrace local life and still have time to relax at the beach. Best of all, there’s always a local CEO there to lead the way and provide a link to the unusual and extraordinary.
