Day 34

Madagascar - Andasibe

semi-overcast 24 °C

Today we visted the Mantadia National Park - although it is only 12km away it took an hour to get there (with a 4x4) as the roads are in a very poor condition - it is a mud track and very bumpy.

We saw three black and white ruffed lemurs high in the trees and a few paradise flycatcher birds. These birds are mostly orange unless it's mating season when they turn black and white.

After a picnic lunch we started the journey back to the hotel stopping at Rianasoa and walking along the path to see the waterfall. The water forms a natural swimming pool and our local guide gave himself a quick wash while we were there.

We took a short walk up into the hills around the hotel late afternoon whilst the sun set.
