Monica in Madagascar
Monica Kowalski, Senior Assistant to Sales, is on the adventure of a lifetime! After multiple safaris on the continent, Monica is off to the small island nation of Madagascar. Follow her journey visiting this unique destination and the national parks full of lemurs, birds and chameleons.
After an overnight in Tana, we were off on our adventure to Andasibe-Mantadia (the transfer is about 3 ½ hours on a very bumpy road)! First walk in Andasibe-Mantadia and already making friends with the locals (brown lemur). So much fun!
We stayed at the Mantadia Lodge which is nicely located close to Mantadia National Park and a newer property.
Today we did two walks a day and night walk! Walks can be strenuous so be prepared! But it offers lots of fantastic lemurs. Great to see some of the night time wildlife.
We saw a beautiful diademed sifaka during our day light walk, and were hoping to both see and hear the indri indri but it was not to be!
The afternoon offered us some spectacular storms in the distance.
Started the afternoon walk in the late afternoon and found a very sleepy night jar (those eye-lashes)!
A sweet little dwarf lemur hiding in the trees and then two gorgeous Parson’s chameleons!
Onto more adventures tomorrow!
