Day 35

Madagascar - Andasibe

semi-overcast 24 °C

Today we visited the Analamazaotra preserve part of the Analamazaotra-Mantadia National Park to try and spot the Indri Indri, the tallest lemur that looks like a teddy bear. In the morning the Indri Indri call to each other to establish their territory. The calls can be heard from several kilometers away.

We managed to spot Indri Indri, Golden lemurs, Common brown and Bamboo lemurs.

Sadly, we then started our journey back to Antananarivo ready for our flight home tomorrow. We took a small detour in Antananarivo to visit the factory showroom for Chocolatiere Robert to get a couple of bars of Madagascan chocolate to take home.

By the time we reached the capital it was the evening rush hour and the roads were gridlocked - it took about an hour to do half a mile. Lots of street hawkers walk up and down the traffic queues selling belts, sunglasses, children's books and car parts.
