Rainforest and lemurs

Written on: August 25, 2014   |   I visited in May 2014 This was the first place I visited once I got to Madagascar. It's only about a three-hour drive from Tana, the capital. The drive was special, too. As you climb up in elevation, the temps drop and it drizzles. Along the clay roads are groups of people, many without shoes, walking for miles with their goods. It was so moving to see this and made me feel super spoiled. I stayed at the Vakona lodge, and I'm glad I did. I thought the food was excellent here and really enjoyed the atmosphere. It was nice to 'warm up' here after a day of trekking in the cool, wet climate. It is really cool and damp here. But, seeing and, more importantly, hearing the Indri lemur was spectacular! Bring warm waterproofs and good shoes.

We visited Andasibe after having spent a good chunk of time in the dry and sunny western part of the island. I was not prepared for the volume of precipitation this place receives! I did not bring long trousers and, as a result, my calves were covered in mosquito bites after the first day of trekking in Andasibe. The park was really interesting as we did not encoun... read more
