Despite the National Parks and the Perinet Reserve being closed in the evenings it is still possible to see some of the nocturnal species by means of a night walk, accompanied by a local guide.
Visit to Lemur Island
Visit to Lemur Island, Madagascar
Spend some time at Lemur Island. This is a tiny reserve that protects a number of habituated lemurs. There are four species to see, the bamboo lemur, the black & white ruffed lemur, brown lemur and one diademed sifaka.
This small reserve receives a very large number of tourists so if you go we would suggest first thing in the morning or last thing in the evening. Even during these times you may find several groups of tourists photographing one group of lemurs and feeding them bananas.

Other experiences in Andasibe National Park (Perinet)
These activities are designed to give you the most authentic experiences around where you're staying. We work with local guides, who use their knowledge and often a resident's eye to show you the main sights and more out-of-the-way attractions. Our specialists can suggest tours and activities, such as cooking classes, that will introduce you to the local ways of life.
The main draw to the Perinet Reserve is the chance of seeing and hearing the indri, the largest surviving lemur species. The indris are only found in this national park.
