  • Highly recommend. What a fantastic 2 days of hiking we did. Wish we could have stayed longer. The wildlife experiences are incredible. With a great guide and good spotters you see so much. We came within 15 feet of golden bamboo lemurs and got fantastic photos. Love it!
  • Wonderful park with so much to see -- lemurs, chameleons, frogs, flowers, birds, butterflies, and more. The guides are knowledgeable and can locate things that at first seem impossible to see.
