to the East coast of Madagascar and its main harbour. During our 150 km (3.5 hrs) long journey, we

fields. A twisty, steep and lush portion of the road will announce that we are entering another region
of Madagascar. You will arrive in Andasibe, known for its National Park, home of the primary and
secondary forest.

Night walk in the VOIMMA reserve
: At nightfall, pick up your headlamps and flashlights for a
nocturnal walk in the rainforest. In 2012, villagers from Andasibe founded the reserve as an alternative
to the governmental led national park in the neighbourhood. The local people wanted to manage their
land on their own again and be a part of ecotourism in this area.

For reptiles and amphibian lovers, the reserve offers countless frogs along its crystal clear river
(among them Boophis pyrrhus, Boophis viridis and madagascariensis) and several amazing
chameleons Chamäleons (Furcifer wilsii, Calumma parsonii cristifer, Calumma nasuta and brevicornis)
in the forest. This is also a place to find the unique satanic leaf-tailed gecko (Uroplatus phantasticus).
Bizarre insects like the famous giraffe necked weevil (Trachelophorus giraffae) are part of the forest,
too.

This community-run reserve is open for night-walks to those interested to search for lemurs, listen to
the frogs, or stumble across sleeping chameleons after dark.
