After visiting the Lemurs park in Antananarivo, the lemurs at the Parc Ivoloina were a slight disappointment. Most (80%) were in cages, apparently for rehabilitation but it was pretty cool to see wild lemurs high in the trees. The walk around the park was amazing...More

Ask for the tour guide called Flavien. He gave us so much interesting information. He stayed longer with us to explain more about the parc. They do a nocturne tour at 5.30pm too. I loved it and I got to feed a chameleon.

This is fairly close to the port, so maybe convenient to visit. I had previously experienced being on an island with wild, uncaged lemurs, so I found this very sad. There were VERY few uncaged animals of any kind. We went to a bird overlook/wetlands...More

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.
