    1. Thank you for the comment, will you be visiting Ankarana? Posted 3 years ago
  2. Don't think so. We will be going to Tana, Antsirabe,then on to Ranamafana staying at the Setam Lodge while we visit National Park. Then a short visit to the Analamazaotra Special Reserve.
    (Staying at Valona Forest Lodge)
    After that we fly to Réunion for a few days. Finally it's Mauritius for a further 4 days ,then home.
    It's not really long enough is it? But at least we get an idea of what each country has to offer and to meet new people and maybe see animals etc that most people only see on television!

    1. In that case you will not see this one, it is quite local to the north. Ranomafana is awesome though and has plenty of its own strange creatures. Same for Analamazaotra, which has the Indri Indri. Posted 3 years ago
