  • Beautiful natural park, but the visit without the accompaniment of a guide is not possible. Beware of the surprise of the right to visit: each circuit has a price to add to the entrance fee, and the credit card is not accepted. The discovery of animals depends on the time: safer at the end of the day (fresh)

  • We had a great time with Olga, a great guide, in a beautiful dry forest in search of lemurs, chameleons, snakes and birds. The park restaurant was great and we ended with a nice boat ride in search of crocodiles!
