Ranomafana became a national park in 1991 after the golden bamboo wall was discovered in 1986. This lemur was seriously threatened with extinction. The park consists of more than 416 km2 of rainforest, filled with unique flora and fauna.

‘Rano’ means water and ‘Mafana’ means warm in Malagasy. This name comes from the hot springs situated in the park. For this reason, the French established a spa in this area and around it the village Ranomafana developed.
