The Andasibe-Mantadia corridor is situated in the foothills of the eastern escarpment of Madagascar. The village of Andasibe offers a perfect base to explore the Andasibe National Park. The 154 km2 park consists of two protected areas: the special Reserve of Indri d’ Analamazaotra and the National Park of Mantadia Analamazaotra, which is better known as “Périnet”.
This conservancy is full of untouched montane forest and natural beauty, and boasts almost all of the eastern rainforest endemics. This area is known for its population of Indri Lemurs, which are the largest living lemurs. During the morning and again in the late afternoon, the sights and sounds of the various lemurs offer an unforgettable wildlife experience.
The Mantadia National Park covers 10,000 hectares. Both Perinet and Mantadia are a sanctuary for birdlife, and the area is known to be the best Ground-Roller reserve in the country. Altogether, this area boasts 112 bird species, eleven lemur species, and is also exceptionally rich in frogs and reptiles, with 39 reptile species, and 36 frog species. Other species of mammals include the Eastern Avahi, the Diademed Sifaka, and the Lowland Streaked Tenrec.
