The key to this zoo is to hire a local guide to explain and take you on a tour of the park. Good value for money. The guide will tell you about the lemurs and local fauna and flora. I recommend mosquito repellent when visiting.

Nice enough place, a bit expensive. It didn't live up to the hype in the guidebooks of THE place in Tomatave.

I am sure this can be organised. It is not too far maybe with a tricycle. I recommend you go to ocean 501 they have a great restaurant and rooms with view on the sea.
