I definitely recommend this reserve over Mantadia Reserve. Closer to the town (Mantadia Reserve is a 1 hour drive away). Nice paths for walking. Much easier to see the lemurs as the tree tops aren't as high. We saw a family of red sifakas, a...More

This reserve is a paradise for nature lovers. You can go there with a local guide. They stop at the right spots to show the animals and endemic plants. Just make sure that you wear walking boots, trousers and long sleeved tops.

They live up on the trees but it is still worthwhile going photo hunting for the lemurs who live here. A good local guide is a must!

This is a very busy park so often there are multiple groups huddled under a tree looking up at lemurs. But it is worth the crowds as we saw many lemurs on our 3 hour hike.

You might be better with hiking boots because of the leeches although strong walking shoes should be ok for the terrain.
