Nice place ! Have a nice guided (included in the ticket) stroll in this botanical garden (i’m not sure you could actually go by yourself). The guide was friendly and knowledgeable about all the trees and plants. There is also a small “museum” part in a building, ask your guide about the local traditions and beliefs ! For 15’000 ar it’s worth it (it’s included if your stay at the hotel ”auberge de la table” but it’s a bit pricey) I wish i could do the night tour to see the animal (like chameleons) active. They have a cafe/restaurant on site too. To go there by taxi or cyclopousse (the later is way cheaper - 4000/6000 ar ow- but it’s like 1h from tulear center).
Night walk was so much fun! The guides are knowledgeable.
