Close to the capital, this is Madagascar's most accessible rainforest reserve, and also one of the most rewarding. If you visit Madagascar for a short period, Andasibe NP is surely a must to see for natures and lemurs encounters. Andasibe-Analamazaotra national park is one of the most rewarding. Frogs, reptiles and birds abound. However, on top of the bill is the indri, the largest of all living lemurs. These creatures sing a haunting song (reminiscent of whale song), which carries for miles across the forest.
