Amber Mountain National Park is a National Park in the Diana Region of northern Madagascar. The park is known for its water falls and crater lakes and is located 1000 km north of the capital, Antananarivo. It is also one of the most biologically diverse places in all of Madagascar; 75 species of birds, 25 species of mammals, and 59 species of reptiles are known to inhabit the park.

This park is also one of the most accessible in northern Madagascar. Bush Taxis travel up to Joffreville daily, leaving from Diego near the Star bottling factory. It is also possible to hire a private taxi which is significantly more affordable than some of the tour companies. The trip by taxi takes about 45 minutes. On the trip up the mountain to the entrance of the park there are a few small villages. Among these is the village of Sakaramy, which features many fruits, including the jackfruit.

There are three primary waterfall attractions within the park. Within the park there is a lodge for guests.

Amber park is also known for its amphibians and reptile wildlife.
