Mantadia National park comprises virtually-untouched primary rainforest and is home to very different species from those seen in Perinet Special Reserve.
A full day’s outing is ideal to look for some of the lemur species in this stunning park including the Indri Lemur, Diademed Sifaka, Grey Bamboo Lemur, Red-Bellied Lemur and White Ruffed Lemur. While the trails are slightly more difficult, the rewards are great as the forest is taller, wilder and less crowded than Perinet. There is an abundance of birds including the Scaly Ground Roller, Pitta-Like Ground Roller and Red Breasted Coua. To do justice to Mantadia you really need to spend a whole day in the park. This is a naturalist’s goldmine with many seldom-seen species of mammals, reptiles and birds.
