Most Inspirational Moment
Being so close to the Ringtailed Lemurs in the Anja Nature Reserve with the mountainous backdrop was something we will always feel privileged to have been a part of.
Impromptu visits to a school and a church service were also inspirational.
Thoughts on Group Leader
Armel was a brilliant guide who had a wealth of knowledge and experience and who put our safety first at all times. He had a great supporting team around him who could not do enough to ensure that our holiday was the best it could possibly have been. Armel had a constant smile on his face and this cascaded through the whole team , making our holiday an unforgettable experience.
Advice for Potential Travellers
Bring any medication with you that you could possibly need including paracetomol, ibroprofen,diarrhoea medication and rehydration salts as we only saw a couple of chemist shops on the entire trip. Best to be prepared!
Bring some supplies for schools as they literally have nothing and if you visit, it would be great to give them things they need in person such as pens, pencils and crayons.
We cycled at the end of the dry season so Madagascar wasn't as green as we had envisaged. Although we were immersed in to the full culture of Malagasy life by cycling the backstreets, and saw great scenery along the way, the wildlife did not live up to expectations. We saw lots of lemurs and Chameleons in the National Parks but other than that, the wildlife was not as prolific as we had imagined. A lot of unregulated deforestation seems to be taking place so we didn't see a wealth of birds. We really enjoyed the holiday and pleased we went despite the lack of wildlife.
