  • A good place to get a view of the wildlife of Madagascar. Nothing negative about the visit. The guide was helpful, the prices were honest and all the animals were well taken care of.
  • Great place to visit and see lots of different geckos, chameleons, snakes, frogs and also sifaka lemurs! The animals seem to be treated well. The longer tour is well worth the price as it takes you to see the lemurs. We were lucky to pet them as they were not at all afraid of humans.
  • This is a great little reserve to see snakes, chameleons, bats, geckos, and some small termite-eating creatures. Well worth a stop. The animals are well treated with shade, water, and food.
  • An interesting reptile park to visit on weekend or on your way to Andasibe. A short hiking was also refreshing.
  • Well done for looking after these endemic species
