The hike in Lokobe reserve was interesting, seeing wildlife and animals in nature. We sam chameleons, uroplatus, and the boa madagascar. I recommend this one than the Nosy Komba, more interesting for wildlife.

We were traveling with MadagasCaT and as a result were able to access the park from the less utilized east side. This was brilliant as the trails had not disturbed the movements of the wildlife as some of the more established trails, so we were able to see plenty wildlife. The Guides were great and passionate about this park and... More

Slightly disappointing to find that this trip is designed in such a way that you have to share the tiny strip of reserve to which you are given access with another 30 travellers (we were there very early in the season). Had imagined we would be walking in primary forest but the path sticks to the peripheral secondary forest. However... More

If you have made it to Madagascar , this is another must See or do . Lots of critters here! It is not easy to experience, but at the end of it all, I wish I had more of a relaxed take it easy visit here. We were always on a time constraint. It's a once in a lifetime excursion... More

This is a small nature reserve, but beautiful and well worth a visit. There are plenty of lemurs, chameleons and other exciting smaller animals. We even saw a large boa constrictor. The little village nearby is also very cute, and we had an amazing local lunch there. Our guide took us there in a local canoe that we had to... More

We spent an hour around here. We enjoyed feeding the lemurs. There was also a crocodile and a giant tortoise.

Nice boat ride to the reserve with a wet landing and a steep climb, all worthwhile. All sorts of critters but the main attraction would be the lemurs! Of course, you can see them running up to you in town as well but I think it best to see them in their environment!

Saw chameleons and lots of different lemurs. Excellent guide with a ton of local knowledge. Superb lunch !! Well worth a visit, but take the Mozzi spray with you.
