Ivoloina Zoo

After walking around Tamatave town, now let’s take the national road number 5


The parc is located 12km north of Tamatave, go traight on road national number 5 towards Foulpoint and turn left on the secondary road at the Ivoloina river (don’t cross the river!) and turn left again at the Ivoloina zoo and forestry station sign at the large picnic area.

It is a regiona center which promotes the concervation of Madagascar’s unique and endangered animals and plants. The Madagascar Fauna Group has worked and still work in collaboration with Madagascar’s ministry of water and forest; the province of Tamatave and local school districts to develop Parc Ivoloina’s animal faciliies and envoronemental education programs. The MFG is an international non profit consortium of 38 zoological parks and conservation center with its headquarters at the San Francesco Zoo in California, USA.
