Explore the lush and misty rainforests of the Ranomafana National Park, with its rare species of flora and fauna, and unique wildlife. This UNESCO World Heritiage is home to 12 species of lemurs and an incredible selection of indigenous birds. Visitors can explore the park on its numerous trails and hikes, escorted by guides that can call the animals using a series of clicks and whistles. There are also jungle waterfalls and pools to cool off in after a long day trekking through the humid jungle.

The best time to visit Ranomafana National Park is between August and December. The park office is located at the entrance to the reserve in the village of Ambodiamontana. This is where visitors will find the privately owned and eco-lodges to spend the night. Guided night walks are available to seek out the nocturnal animals in the reserve. Ranomafana is relatively well-developed for tourism and has comparably good facilities and infrastructure including a decent access road
