Welcome to Parc Ivoloina

Parc Ivoloina

Located just a short drive from Toamasina, which is situated on the centre of the eastern coast of the country, the Parc Ivoloina makes a great day out for all kinds of visitors. In the Zoological Park, visitors can meet more than 100 free-ranging lemurs of 10 species, as well as tortoises, tenrecs and chameleons. There are also Dugout Canoe tours, nature trails, an education centre and even spectacular gardens to enjoy as well. Visitors can pack a picnic and enjoy the surroundings while learning about Madagascar's indigenous animals, and there are camping facilities for those keen on waking up to the sounds of birds and lemurs by a pretty lakeside campsite.

Information & Facts

MGD 10,000 (adults); MGD 4,000 (children). Guides and group rates also available.
Malagasy is the official language, but French is used in business and government and is widely spoken in the main cities in Madagascar. A few people involved in the tourism industry might be able to speak some English, but it is not widely spoken.

The official currency is the Malagasy ariary (MGA), which has been reintroduced to replace the Malagasy franc. Coins and notes display both currencies, but newer notes display the ariary more prominently than the franc. One ariary is equal to five francs. Foreign currencies can be exchanged at banks and official bureaux de change, but the ariary cannot be changed back into hard currency. Some banks will only accept US dollars or Euro. Travellers cheques can be exchanged at most banks and in major hotels, but some banks refuse to accept them. ATMs are available in Antananarivo. Most major credit cards are starting to be accepted in top hotels and major travel agencies in the capital and other major towns, but have limited usage elsewhere.
