Highlights and main attractions of Masoala National Park
Known for its incredible array of biodiversity, the Masoala National Park and its offshore island reserve of Nosy Mangabe represent the largest of Madagascar’s protected land areas and some of its least visited. The habitats you are likely to come across here are wide-ranging, from flooded forest marshland and coastal forests to mangroves, which collectively teem with life and provide a fascinating look at the island’s many natural wonders.
Established in 1997, the rugged landscape of the park, combined with the best known marine parks and some of the most pristine rainforest, makes it a good choice exploration and with fewer visitors and a larger area you are likely to enjoy the nature in relative isolation.
This is also one of the few places in Madagascar where the rainforest meets the sea, giving the area, arguably, the biggest, most unique and exhilarating variety of circuits of all the national parks.
