It actually comprises two parts:
The Mantadia Park and the Analamazaotra
reserve of Indri.
A real treasure in terms of fauna, Andasibe hosts 11 species of
lemurs of which the biggest , the Indri Indri, is easily spotted
because of its impressive shrieks. It cannot bear being in captivity,
so it can be admired only in its natural milieu.
The park also shelters several species of birds, reptiles, insects
and batrachians. As for its flora, it is the luxuriant vegetation
of tropical forests with several varieties of ferns, epihyts, sacred
creepers, orchids and dwarf palm trees.
The park has an interpretation centre as well as places laid out
for a picnic.
It is the most visited hotspot for ecotourism and includes the Special
Reserve of Analamazaotra (810ha) and the Mantadia National Park
