Parc National Andasibe Mantadia, Madagascar

We have ventured to Madagascar for its iconic wildlife, and our first destination is Andasibe Mantadia National Park. Just four hours drive from the capital, it is a perfect introduction to the lemurs, chameleons, lizards, snakes, frogs and all sorts of weird and wonderful beetles that populate the forests of this colourful country.

Venturing to Madagascar

Having had Madagascar on our travel list for longer than we can remember, we were finally able to lock in a trip to this beautiful and surprising island!  We confess to some trepidation, the recent popular news out of the country was slightly less than inviting and prompted many doubtful questions and comments from friends and family when announcing our next destination.  But if you can look past the headlines (which often serve an ulterior purpose, more on that later) you will discover, as we have, another of the worlds great treasures.
