  • Travelled in Madagascar for a month, and the Andringitra was absolutely one of the best things I discovered in the country. Stunning landscape, amazing hiking paths and a close connection to nature...  more »
  • The landscape of this national park is stunning, and there are several hikes possible of a day, as well as a longer 3 day hike. We decided to do the chameleon hike, which was excellent. Not too hard.....  more »

  • Apparently one of the most beautiful national parks in Madagascar and not as crowded as the others. The route is not very difficult, but varied. However, it is worth preparing for the trip. In the park there are prepared places for camping with cottages where you can light fire. Beautiful views. Remember that it is at a high altitude and the temperatures at night are very low.
  • Five stars National Park. Looks like Yosemite except you don't find tons of annoying tourists and the wildlife is beyond expectations. Don't forget to bring a lot of water during your hikes. Don't hesitate to share some food with your guide and porters. We had campfire dinner and shared marshmallows with them. It was my favorite moment of my entire stay. Also it's getting really cold at night if you stay at Andriampotsy base camp to reach the peak at sunrise. So bring warm clothes (even if it's Madagascar, it's cold). One last thing : if you have hiking gear you don't need, you can leave them to the guides and porters
