- The clear highlight of this trip was the Lemurs, some we glimpsed others were up close, almost every day was a lemur day. For twitters there were also many birds, our twitter recoded 98 different. Our guide ran the tour very well, making sure everyone knew what was going on Re meals, departures, etc. Transport was adequate, but the biggest issue is the state of the roads, acknowledged by the guide as poor meaning a 250km drive takes pretty much all day (8-5). Despite the roads all of the overnights were good. Never ventured outside hotel at night, safety. Most on the trip changed too much money, as single traveller I spent about £250 with little on souvenirs. Meals were all good, tho breakfast is only simple in most places. Nearly all in group had some sort of minor tummy upset, but never serious and probably to be expected. Madagascar is very poor, kids loved pencils and bonbons. Summary is a good trip, glad I went.
