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.

Parc Ivoloina is about 25 minutes north of the Toamasina airport. So, if you haven't seen any lemurs, this is an easy way to do so before you leave. Be forewarned that the last couple of miles of "road" to the parc are dirt and are VERY rough. It took almost 15 minutes to get to the parc after turning... More

If you want to feel real forest, come and see. Entrance fee 8 usd dollar for person. 1guide fee 5 usd. But it is difficult to go to there. Recommend to use taxi. It takes 40minutes From downtown to this place .

Booked a visit through Centre Lambahoany, who mainly organised a car and driver to take me there for the whole day: the driver waited from 10AM-7PM until I was ready to leave. Most of the lemurs are rescued and placed in large cages for rehabilitation in a section of the park. There are some freed lemurs who hang out in... More

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 spot...no animals. We hiked up to a waterfall, which was nice and refreshing, but again...no... More

I really like this location. I love seeing the lemurs - they are so curious! The hike is great, and I strongly recommend taking the time to walk to the big waterfall. It's gorgeous. We've never gotten a guide, but I hear that it's well worth the nominal fee. Definitely worth taking a look!

We visited Parc Ivoloina in January, right after the Lychee season had finished. This was a good time, as the wild lemurs have to come right down from the trees to find food. We were advised that they stay high up when the trees are full of Lychees. They were also very active throughout the morning we were there. We... More

We saw one Lemur in the trees every other animal we saw was in a small cage. The vegetation is lush and varied. We understood it was a park with a fenced boundary with animals roaming freely, this was not the case. The road to it is awful, we both had back aches after the trip, potholes are 6 to... More

A nice parc,about forty minutes of drive from Tamatave,a good representation of the flora and fauna of the island that is so big that may be regarded as a subcontinent,plenty of cameleons of different sizes,as well as some lemurs
