Lémurs’ Park Antananarivo.

Lémurs’ Park, located 20 kilometers southwest of Antananarivo, is emerging as a sanctuary dedicated to the preservation of lemurs. Visitors can immerse in the diversity of Madagascar’s lemurs. Lémurs’ Park also contributes to conservation, rehabilitation and awareness-raising. Let’s discover together the wonders of this park, where preserving wildlife and understanding its ecosystem are at the heart of the adventure.

About Lemurs’ Park in Antananarivo, an adventure between history, biodiversity and activities.

Along the Route RN1 (towards Ampefy), between the villages of Fenoarivo and Imerintsiatosika, lies the Park. It was founded around 10 years ago by Laurent Amouric and Maxime Allorge (grandson of Pierre Boiteau, founding director of the Parc Botanique et Zoologique de Tsimbazaza).

Open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Lemurs’ Park costs 15,000 ariary per person. Groups of three or more adults get a discount, with 8,000 ariary for children.

Service includes guided tours, access to restrooms, gift store and restaurant. Many praise the well-maintained facilities and knowledgeable guides.

Meals in the restaurant must be booked 48 hours in advance. Please note that the restaurant and gift store are closed on Mondays between January and April.

Activities that make Antananarivo’s Lemurs’ Park a sanctuary of learning.

The Lemurs’ Park works with the Madagascan Ministry of Water and Forests. It receives abused lemurs from tropical forests. This partnership ensures the preservation of these primates.

In addition to preserving wildlife, the park contributes to nature conservation. Regular reforestation initiatives plant endemic species. Since its creation, Lémurs’ Park has planted no fewer than 11,000 trees, consolidating its commitment to biodiversity conservation.

Lémurs’ Park is an ideal place to observe lemurs without leaving Antananarivo. Although you are not allowed to touch the lemurs, the animals move freely around the park.

The park is home to nine species of lemur, both diurnal and nocturnal, from different regions of Madagascar. Varieties such as the catta lemur, the sifaka or the microcebe amaze visitors with their social behaviors and characteristics.

In addition to lemurs, other animal species include endemic birds, native chameleons, small mammals and reptiles.

The environment boasts over 70 plant species, including some 40 endemic to Madagascar. This plant variety provides lemurs with a natural habitat, in addition to fruits, vegetables, leaves and insects.

A program promotes the reproduction and rehabilitation of lemurs. A special facility has been set up for this purpose. Experts and caretakers monitor the reproductive cycle of these primates. Research into understanding the specific needs of each species optimizes captive living conditions for these lemurs.

Lémurs’ Park collaborates with Total and Colas Madagascar to offer disadvantaged schoolchildren access to the park. The aim is to raise children’s awareness of lemur conservation and forest protection.
