How did you hear about "NDAO-i-Travel"?

Park Ivoloina
and All the sights Toamasina

It is one day-night excursion. The tour starts with a visit to a small nature reserve north of Toamasina to come eye-to-eye with twelve different species of lemurs, and also frogs, chameleons, birds, and much more. Discover the magic of Madagascar at Park Ivoloina. Ivoloina is close enough for a day trip but with so many things to do and see, one can easily spend several days exploring nine kilometers of well-maintained hiking trails, scheduling a nocturnal lemur visit, touring gardens and orchards, exploring historic ruins, or relaxing by the lake.

Created in 1898, it was originally an experimental garden, and offers now a good insight view of lemur species, as well as a selection of Madagascar’s flora. The park is a project of the primate department of the Duke University and makes a sensational effort in lemur breeding and conservation. Lemur will come to eat bananas in your hands. Operated by the non-profit organization Madagascar Fauna & Flora Group (MFG), 100% of the proceeds from your visit to Park Ivoloina directly support conservation and education efforts in eastern Madagascar.

Enjoy this... A visit to Park Ivoloina is an experience to remember:

The Park's topography is varied and includes forested hills that are dominated by exotic trees, especially pine and eucalyptus. The native palm, ravenala, which grows well in degraded forests, is abundant as is the native but highly invasive bracken fern. Over the years small sections have been reforested with native trees; a complete reforestation plan that prioritizes endemic species is being developed. The flat areas within the Park have been used to establish a tree nursery and demonstrate various alternative agricultural techniques and crops. A series of lakes were created in the Park during colonial times including the five hectares “Lake Flugence” that borders one side of the zoo.

The Ivoloina Zoo: The four-hectare zoo only exhibits wildlife endemic to Madagascar including twelve lemur species, some of which are free-ranging, various amphibians and reptiles. The Zoo also serves as a government - authorized site to house animals confiscated by the authorities and illegally held pets given up by private individuals.

The Forestry Station: The forestry station represents the largest site within the Parc and includes all forested sections, the lakes, hiking trails, picnic areas and a campsite. The forestry station plays an important role as the ICTC's field site where students can gain hands-on experience in conservation research and monitoring methods such as flora and fauna surveys, GIS and habitat measurements.

The Ecoagriculture Model Station: This site is comprised of multiple demonstration areas and nurseries that show different products (e.g., vegetables, fruits, medicinal plants) and farming techniques (e.g., intensive rice cultivation, composting, preparing terraces along the curvature of the land).

Thereafter, either on foot or by pousse-velo (tricycle), excursion to learn about the history of Toamasina and its sights, as well as about a cheerful night life of the city. Excellent restaurants and bars of course we will also visit, and barbecue on the waterfront.
