Montagne DAmbre National Park

Established by the French in 1958, Montagne d'Ambre (Amber Mountain) National Park  comprises a 8,500-ha volcanic massif and its surrounding forests.  This is now one of the country’s best examples of ecotourism which invites local community participation in planning and management.
Thousands of acres of montane rainforest are home to extraordinary plant and animal life. Huge ferns and strangler figs flourish in the forest, while several indigenous species of lemurs, including Sanford’s Lemur and the Crowned Lemur, are also found here. You may even see Ring-Tailed Mongoose and Fossa. The magnificent birdlife includes Crested Ibis, Paradise Flycatcher, Forest Rock Thrush and Ground-Rollers.  

Visitors can’t miss three dramatic waterfalls: Cascade Sacré, Cascade d’Antankarana and Cascade d’Antomboka. En route you will spot abundant wildlife and incredible flora while learning about the local Malagasy customs from your guide. This is one of the most visitor-friendly of the island’s protected areas with broad trails and a cooler climate.
