We are out of the lodge at 7:30 this morning to commence a very long day of hiking in the National Parks of Madagascar in search of the incredible Lemurs. 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 …
He told me to wait in a clearing while he tried to find some Indri that were further down in the trees. Meanwhile, I heard rustling further up the path. Without thinking, I followed the noise. In another clearing high in the trees, I spotted the grey furry animals. Tina saw me and by the time he reached me, the Indri had broken into complete song.
There I was in the forest, within 10ft of me, 360 degrees, I was completely surround by singing Lemurs.

How has this hotel rated in the past?
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 hot water in each bungalow is provided by a propane tank, and if the pilot light goes out you need to summon assistance (unless you feel confident about lighting it yourself). 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!
