Lemur Island was a highlight of our visit to Madagascar, and I am glad we made it our last Andasibe activity. I have to admit I wasn’t sure about going there. We had visited several parks and reserves during the previous days where we worked...More
Best experience in mada!
I know it s very touristy, but the experience is great! There are plenty of different lemures and they get so close that they even climb on you!
Go to vakona lodge and by the ticket offering also the cayak (whitout...More
We took a canoe (with a guide) to the other two lemur islands. There was a large group there from National Geographic and they only went to the first island. There are "friendly" lemurs on all three islands. If you want to have them jump...More
If you don't mind seeing lemurs that were kept in captivity before being relocated in Lemur islands. They run around on their islands but for sure the park feed them daily.

It is always a challenge to balance exposure of animals to people, but I think in a country which offers so much amazing viewing it is not necessary to restrict animals as is done at Vakona. Lemur Island is a small area where the lemurs...More
We visited during our stay in the area and it’s a great way to get up close to the Lemurs you’ve spent hours tracking in the wild. Yes they are trained to jump on you but they are friendly and not aggressive like monkeys -...More
We visited Vakona last month with Tusk Photo and it was better than I expected. The food was great (we had paid for the 3 meal/day plan so the choices were limited, but good). The rooms were nice and clean. The grounds of the lodge...More
