An interpretation center starts the visit, though we didn't stay there too long. Native plants neighbor endemic ones in a joyous chaos, some with plates indicating their name. We spent two hours mounting the hill and got a much welcomed grapefruit snack facing the westward scenery. The place could be better developed: trails, shelters, ... as it directly faces the ocean - and rain. Also, I think the name could be rebranded to a native one.

If you have a few (3!) hours to spare, come and visit. Guides are fabulous, they will tell the story and the names of the plants, they will explain if each one of the plants are exotic or endemic...The walk is simply invigorating.

I have been several times in Macolline through the last ten years and the changes and improvements are impressive. And so many more trees. This place is a paradise for who loves Nature, allowing to anybody to spend a marvellous time in a rebuilt environnement, almost created from nowhere and becoming more and more a real forest full of endemic species. Sceneries are beautiful too, fruits and lunchs are great and Marie Hélène Kam Hyo, the founder and still in close charge, is an extraordinary character and has so much energy and strength, spending it in many incredible projects such as Macolline and also the CALA association (amongst others). If you have time in Antalaha or in the SAVA area, this day spent there won't be lost or wasted, not talking about the contribution you will make to many small side-projects. And you will plant a tree !
