Amazing ❤️ 👌 so beautiful certainly worth the effort
The Ranomafana National Park is well preserved and in appropriate conditions. Extremely clean with friendly and efficient guides. It is appreciated to contribute to a responsible tourism, because part of the fee of these visits, goes to the conservation of the park and the study of the flora and fauna. The trail is safe and well conditioned, during the trail we saw 6 of the 11 different species of Lemurs, also chameleons and different birds. is quite safe and the guide is concerned that everything goes well. The guide can offer an evening tour to see nocturnal animals in the area. At the end of the long journey it is very rewarding and recommendable to take a dip in the thermal hot water pool of the town. The park might be over saturated of visits in high season, less charming and genuine. As people is talking and taking photos to the animals all the time.
