17th June: The Journey Begins

We were greeted at 7:30 am by our DriveMada driver Andrej. We discussed our plans with him for a few minutes and after paying our bill we said our goodbyes and headed off to Andasibe NP. Our journey was interrupted by several stops to buy one or two missing essentials and a stop at an excellent restaurant recommended to us by Andrej. We arrived at about 14:30, checked into Feon’ny Ala hotel and arranged to do a short walk in a piece of forest owned by VOI MMA, which is a community run project organised by local guides. The walk was easy and fun. We saw Indri Indri, Eastern Lesser Bamboo Lemur and a Parsons Chameleon. We like the guide and have hired his services for a much more adventurous day in Mantadia NP tomorrow.
