Cascading waterfalls, glassy lakes and idyllic swimming holes are just a few of the reasons to visit Amber Mountain National Park. Extending across 185 square kilometers at Madagascar’s northern tip, the park is a hub of biodiversity and is easily accessible, making it one of the country’s popular tourist destinations.
The park is home to endemic birds, lemurs, amphibians and a profusion of reptiles, including the little stump-tailed chameleon and the emerald tree boas. If you are lucky, you can spot the cutest & smallest chameleon in the world! At last, more than a 1 000 plant species are to be seen here.
On your way in or out of Amber Mountain, it’s worth stopping at the village of Joffreville to steep yourself in some local Malagasy culture.
Regarding access, the Amber Mountain National Park is easy to access from Diego Suarez (Antsiranana). One hour drive to Joffreville, then 30 minutes drive on a bumpy road to the entrance gate of the park. Good hotels are available in Joffreville, Boogie Pilgrim recommends The Litchee Tree boutique hotel with unique atmosphere!
Combine the visit of Amber Mountain national park with other highlights in the area: Tsingy Rouge reserve, Ankarana National Park and even Nosy Be island!
