spiny forest, or highwayman hidden place, the forest of garafantsy or more usually, ankarafantsika, inspired nothing more than terror to the neighboring population. had that state preserved the forest from destruction? we do not dare make such statement. fact is that the nowadays ankarafantsika is completely different, a cozy forest, realm of birds and home for lemurs and reptiles. bird watchers as much as the common visitor will appreciate the permanent presence and proximity of aquatic and forestall birds. day or night, the forest of ankarafantsika echoes songs of birds and calls of lemurs.

well structured paths and closeness of the forest make ankarafantsika a very easy to access and visit national park, a place for the active as for the quieter visitors alike.
