Discover lemurs beneath the lush canopy of Madagascar’s rainforest

Tucked away in Madagascar’s verdant north, Amber Mountain National Park stretches over 185km2 and is home to staggering peaks up to 1,475m high. With its own microclimate and crater lakes, you’ll also find the park home to a huge and exotic array of flora and fauna.

If you love wildlife, you won’t be disappointed by Amber Mountain’s lemurs. The island is home to many different species of this adorable primate, including the Sanford's brown lemur and crowned lemur. Your guide will help you identify, understand and see these as you explore beneath the canopy. Along the way there will be croaking frog, lizard, stunning butterfly and the elusive, 2cm, long leaf-mimic brookesia chameleon all waiting for keen eyes to spot them.

We’ll create a unique tailored travel experience for you, and if it’s encountering utterly unusual and sometimes bizarre plant life that is on your bucket list, then you are in the right place. Huge bird's nest ferns, mystical strangler figs and cycads are just a few of the plants that make Madagascar so fascinating to explore. Amber Mountain’s flora is particularly lush close to the park’s crashing waterfalls and misty lakes.

Finally, remember to keep your eyes open for some of the amber-coloured resin from which it takes its name, and which is still used by the Malagasy people for medicinal purposes.
