This was my least favorite park of our trip because it was so crowded. Not at all peaceful. But it was worth putting up with the crowds to see and hear the Indiri. If you can see the Indiri elsewhere than I would opt out.

Close contact with Indri and also did we find the specific Mada milliped. As a Finnair customer we usually giveaway our "bonuspoints" to this Reserve. I have a uniques fauna compared to the other parks in Andasibe. Will travel back!

This small provate reserve allows visitors to go on night walks so it is very useful to include this in your itinerary...

We had a great 3 hour hike. The indris are so comfortable with visitors that one even come down from the tree tops to accept new leaves from the guides. We also saw several varieties of chameleons and a leaf tail gecko.

We spotted 6 different diurnal lemur species here, including the Indri. As night fell, we enjoyed night spotting along the road, seeing many frogs and chameleons. The highlight came when our local guide helped us find a tiny night-active lemur (Goodman's Mouse Lemur).

The first day there we did the Vahimantsina circuit (3-4hr). We left early morning and it was raining the whole day so we didn't get to see that much. We saw the Indri's but they weren't active as they were hiding from the rain. We saw...More

This community-owned reserve was not as well developed (trails were poor) and the community guide assigned to us was not at all good. And Mitsinjo Reserve would not allow you to bring your own local guide. We'd been using Morris for the previous 2.5 days...More

Mitsinjo Reserve is a small forest reserve run by local community, less known than Andasibe National park, however I think it is a better choice. We took two tours there, afternoon 2-3 hours walk (at around 2 pm) and 2 hours night walk (at 6:30...More

I can't recommend Mitsinjo highly enough. The guides are fantastic and much more reasonably priced then the Andasibe National Park. This is also a completely community run reserve so you can physically see where your money is going. They run a womens heath center, amphibian...More
