This national park is quite small, easy walk (if you do not want to do the bit climbing as well),very likely to spot lemurs, chameleons and other animals. The famous Katta lemurs can be fund here and the surrounding mountains are beautiful.

This is a small park, get s guide (they only speak French) and follow him around. The views are spectacular as are the plants. The highlights were the ring tailed limas ( loads of) and the camilions. We loved it also because it was run...More

Anja Reserve is beautiful -- the topography is a bit like what you see in Yosemite, with huge granite monoliths. It's a great place to hike with a guide (guides are required, but should be available at the entrance). The bonus is the ring-tailed lemurs,...More
