Le Domaine de Fontenay has its own 300ha nature park with bubbling streams and waterfalls, spectacular views of the Bay of Diego, the Indian Ocean, and the Mozambique Channel, and well-maintained and marked trails for the discovery and enjoyment of its flora and fauna.
Access to this park is free of charge to our resident-guests. However, we do recommend a guided walk with a professional Malagasy guide for a nominal fee. Night guided walks during the summer (from mid-September to April) offer additional and rewarding discoveries.
