Madagascar

  • Good afternoon Bill and Rob, some feedback as requested: Our guide Lalaina and our driver Njiva were excellent, as was our guide, Petrice, at Vakona Lodge. His knowledge of birds was fantastic and his ability to see minute species of chameleons and camouflaged birds was unbelievable. You were quite right to say not to do the night walk at Ranomafana. Laurie, our guide was sure that we would see the Mouse Lemur but as we were joined by 30 other tourists of the Mouse Lemur there was no sign. Laurie was another excellent guide, very caring of us old folk! The drive to Le Jardin du Roy was spectacular (we drove through two swarms of locusts) and the hotel wonderful. I have to say thank-you for arranging a birthday cake which was lovely. Everyone thought there was a power cut when the lights went out for the arrival of the candle lit cake! The holiday was an amazing experience even if there were one or two ‘should a grandmother really be doing this?’ moments. The poverty was some of the worst that we have ever seen, even so the people seem happy and friendly. It is worrying that the wildlife is still under threat. Tourism helps the economy and if there are no lemurs to see it will dry up.

    Felicity and Rob travelled to Madagascar
