Andasibe - Mantadia Nationalpark, only 150 km, about 3 hrs drive eastwards from the capital of Madagascar is one of the most visited National Parks in Madagascar. It is the home of the largest living lemur in the world, the Indri Indri.
Naturally there are also other lemurs as the Diademed Sifaka, Black and White Ruffed Lemur, the Grey Bamboo Lemur... to just name a few who are calling this Park home.
Remind yourself its a high altitude rain forest... nights could be fresh and not to forget the rain coat! Camera is a must!
On a little private Island owned by the Hotel Vakona one has a chance to experience lemurs, those rescued lemurs climb on the visitors back for a banana snack or for some cuddles, they are very curious but one shall never forget they are wild animals. It is a unforgettable experience to at least once hold this little tiny hands...
Not to miss shortly after sunset a night walk at the private community project VOIMMA what stands for "local people like the forest". Checking for sleeping chameleons and night active lemurs as the tiny little mouse lemurs or the dwarf lemurs.
You got a few more days... i suggest a trip about two hours drive further down towards the east coast to Manambato for a boat trip along the Pangalana Channel to the unique lodge by the lake; Palmarium, beautifully situated by the lake with its private Park... also home of the Indri Indri and other Lemurs. The Palmarium Hotel owns an Island on the Pangalana Channel where one can visit the very rare nocturnal Aye Aye Lemurs. To continue you're journey i suggest you to continue the boat ride down the channel to the east coast, to Taomasina.
