Our first visit is timed to see the Indri-Indri Lemurs at the hour when they are shrieking in the forests. We are incredibly lucky, and encounter a family right away. Their shrieks are for …
... if that is the correct translation to lemur dore. We also spotted our chameleon right next to the restaurant after breakfast. Francois and Lucie gave a few leeches a nice snack, Francois on the ankle and Lucie on the front of the shoulder and on the back of her thigh. I stopped one from getting a free meal on my arm.

Our group stayed in the "bungalows" section of the lodge. They are very basic, but provide what we need for a true adventure experience.

The common elements of the lodge are great, and the food is excellent. It is a perfect place from which to stage lemur-sighting safaris!
