This 18,500ha park is located in the North of Madagascar, 40 kilometres south of Diego Suarez.  The park has its own micro-climate with peaks reaching up to 1,475 metres. The name of the park originates from the amber-coloured resin which comes from some of the trees and is used locally by the Malagasy for medicinal purposes. While visiting this magnificent park you will be impressed by the huge bird's nest ferns, strangler figs and cycads, by the waterfalls and lakes, and of course the lemurs. There are many species including the Sanford's Brown Lemur and Crowned Lemur. Take time also to look out for the smaller inhabitants of the park - frogs, lizards, butterflies and the leaf-mimic brookesia chameleon which is just over 2cm long.
