Amber Mountain National Park, Joffreville

3.8
#6 of 7 in Nature in Antsiranana Province
Explore the lush northern Madagascar landscape at Amber Mountain National Park. This park boasts three major waterfalls and a diverse variety of wildlife, including 75 species of birds and nearly 60 species of reptiles. Keep your eyes peeled for lemurs, chameleons, mongoose, and bright butterflies during your trek. The clearly marked trails make this park easy to hike without a guide, and the Sacred Waterfall is just a short walk into the forest. Other waterfalls and viewpoints from the top of Amber Mountain require more time; consider staying at the on-site hotel for convenience. Consider visiting between September and November when the warm temperatures make the animals more active. Take a look at our Joffreville online trip planner to schedule your visit to Amber Mountain National Park and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • We visited Amber Mountain National Park as part of a guided excursion from AIDAblu. Since Madagascar is not yet really developed for tourism, it is definitely a good idea not to do anything on your own here. Our group of about 80 off-road vehicles took a relatively long time from the port to the park, as the roads are in very poor condition, unpaved, potholes and uneven. On site we found a wonderful nature and it was a real experience to experience the park. Just under 95% humidity is not for everyone. It is recommended to put on breathable clothing. Also take a towel and possibly change items. January belongs to the monsoon season and so we found ourselves in the middle of the rain for about 20 minutes. But at 30 ° air temperature a welcome cooling. A great outing.
