The rainforest habitat of Ranomafana National Park extends over an area of 161 square miles and forms part of the Atsinanana UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site.
Its many river and streams, most of which are tributaries of the Namorona River, play an essential role in sustaining the lives of various rare and threatened species of Lemur and around one hundred species of birds (some thirty of which are forest-dwelling), as well as butterflies, amphibians and reptiles in the kinds of large numbers that you will see often during your trip to Madagascar. The park's steep, mountainous landscape and scenery is exceptionally beautiful and its waterfalls spectacular. When it comes to trees and plants, one thing to point out is that if you love orchids you should visit the park in September or November.
