Inside the park, there are 55 species of birds, 3 species of lemurs (Catta, the black-headed lemur and Verreaux'sSifaka). In the driest areas, the Pachipodium blooms between September and October. The main attraction of the park is certainly constituted by the rock formations, the canyons and the natural pools, ideal for a refreshing bath. The forest vegetation is concentrated in the part low in the canyons where there is water, the UapacaBojeri tree is endemic to this area fire-resistant; on the rocks grow other endemic plants such as the pachypodium and the paws of an elephant (Aloe isaloenis). In the Park, there are different types of routes which can be accessed from different areas. It is recommended the route of about 8 hours, with a lunch break included, which leads to the natural pools, to Canyon des Singes. The route can be decided with the guide who is always available to accompany you along the path you prefer.

You will pass through mountain villages, rice fields and breathtaking views.
