Andasibe-Mantadia can be visited throughout the year. Indri and most other lemurs can be spotted at any time. Ideal months are April, May, October and November. January to March tend to be very wet; rain can interfere with your activities and the forest paths can become very slippery. The cold dry months, from June to September are less good for spotting reptiles and dwarf lemurs.
