Andasibe

...

... is located in the Eastern region of Madagascar.

Situated in the highland forests some 140km east of the capital Antananarivo the village of Antasibe was historically a spa resort alongside the colonial railway from the coast.

These days it is a major centre for forest trekking amongst prodigious endemic flora and fauna. For most visitors encounters with indris, the largest species of lemur, are the main highlights.

At just 8 square kilometres, Andasibe is the smaller of the reserves, with easier trails and much higher visitor numbers. A little to the north, Mantadia extends to 100 square kilometres, has a much more testing set of trails and far fewer visitors.

The best accommodation is at Vakona Forest Lodge and Eulophiella Lodge, both of which are tucked in the forest away from the village.

Situated 65km to the northest of the capital the Anjozorobe-Angavo reserve covers 522 square kilometre of primary forest containing similar flora and fauna, including indris. There are far fewer visitors into this area, but the lemurs are much less habituated. The best accommodation is at Saha Forest Camp.

Around 50km east of the capital the scenic Lake Mantasoa has resort style accommodation at Domaine de l'Ermitage.
