Welcome to Ranomafana National Park

Ranomafana National Park

Most people who travel to Madagascar are avid nature lovers and few of them miss a visit to the Ranomafana National Park. This lush green jungle and rainforest boasts a wide diversity of animals, 12 species of lemurs and an incredible selection of indigenous birds. Visitors can explore the park on its wonderful trails and hikes, and many guides can even call the animals using a series of clicks and whistles. There are also wonderful jungle waterfalls and pools to cool off after a long day trekking through the humid jungle. The best time to visit Ranomafana National Park is between August and December.

Information & Facts

Two hours east of Fianarantsoa, in south central Madagascar
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.
