Masoala National Park is located in the northeastern region of Madagascar and covers a vast 2,300 sq km of lush rainforest. The Park was created with the intention to protect the Masoala peninsula that contains valuable ecosystems such as marshlands, coastal forest, mangrove, rain forests, and flood forests.
The Park is home to a number of interesting animal and plant species unique to the area. For nature lovers, this island is sure to bring about some great sightings and fascinating opportunities to see the wildlife in their natural habitat. The nocturnal Aye Aye lemur species is easily spotted at night and a common attraction to see. In addition, the island hosts many varieties of chameleons and geckos in many different colors and sizes. The funky tomato frog is also frequently spotted due to its bright red color. For bird lovers, the rare serpent eagle exists and is easily seen on this island. Beneath the crystal blue water of the ocean, lies even more astonishing wildlife-making this a great place for diving, snorkeling, and kayaking. Overall, the rich flora and fauna community that lives within this environment is truly spectacular and will make appreciate the beauty of life, if nothing else.
