Easily explore Madagascar’s Amber Mountains


Madagascar’s north coast is littered with verdant pockets of flourishing wildlife in diverse habitats in protected reserves. One such example is the Montagne d’Ambre National Park, or the Amber Mountains National Park. This is one of Madagascar’s most accessible parks, as guests can explore it on their own and at their leisure, while the nearby town of Joffreville provides accommodation to suit every traveller. 

Amber Mountains National Park exists in its own isolated tract of montane forest. Spread across over 18,000ha, this wildlife sanctuary is considered one of the most biologically diverse places on the entire island. The forest floor is broken here and there by crater lakes and waterfalls that attract the park’s wildlife, including 7 different lemur species, an array of chameleons, and several geckos. Birders will want to keep an eye out for the rare Madagascar fish eagle found hiding amid orchids, nest ferns, or palm trees.

The park has a number of hiking trails that lead to viewpoints, cascading waterfalls, or tranquil crater lakes. The park is approximately 1000km from Madagascar’s capital. Visitors can fly in to Antsiranana and drive the short 36km to the park or private taxis can be hired at affordable rates as an alternative to buses or shared taxis.
