  • Nice arboretum with good guides to show you around. Tortoises can be seen here
  • Beautiful! Great guide. A great place to hang out in combination with the auberge
  • Nice place for botanists and plants lovers. Many species of madagascar plants and trees. Do not expect big baobabs, only small ones.

  • Very interesting list of all plants that the island has to offer
