Madagascar’s first national park, Montagne d’Ambre (Amber Mountain National Park) offers a cool escape, and is home to crowned lemurs and Sanford’s brown lemurs, plus a wonderful array of reptiles.

The park plays host to an abundance of chameleons and numerous leaf-tailed geckos, and the well-maintained trail system offers some rewarding walks.

Two waterfalls - Cascade d’Antomboka and Cascade Sacrée - form focal points, and there are crater lakes (Lac de la Coupe Verte and La Grande Lac), plus viewpoints over the forest and surrounding area.

Located towards the island’s northern tip, Montagne d’Ambre is reached by flying to Antsiranana (Diego Suarez), from where it is less than an hour by road.
