Marojejy lies towards the northern extreme of the rainforest belt and comprises some of its most remote and unexplored areas. The park’s fauna and flora are extremely rich; it is home to the rare silky sifaka and nine other lemur species.
Other spectacular species include the ring-tailed mongoose and birds like the helmet vanga, plus countless reptiles and frogs. As well as the wildlife to be found in and around the park, Marojely peak, at 2,132 metres, affords spectacular views.
Marojejy, which became a national park in 1998, is reached by flying to Sambava on the north-east coast and then driving inland on the Andapa road to the village of Manantenina. From here the park boundary is around two hours on foot.
Note: Marojejy is not accessible during the cyclone season (January to mid April).
