It was a real shame that the day we went to Ranomafana it was insanely busy, but it was. It really compromised our experience. Being at the bottom of a tree with 40 other people all squeezed in and ask trying to get a photo...More

This was our first stop on a 2 week tour of madagascar. The walking in the Forrest was quite tough but it was fantastic to see so many lemurs in their natural habitat. Well worth a visit. The guides were friendly and knowledgeable.

It starts at sunset around 6 pm but you will need to get to the start so mast be leaving your accommodation half an hour earlier. More of a walk than a hike!
