Arriving in Tana, we then went east to the Andasibe area, stopping (thankfully) along the bumpy road to visit a park with many of the local animals. We then connected with guide Dominque who was great at telling and showing us the unique plants and animals of that area. We had lemurs on our shoulders in a park and fed an Indri in the wilds! Next we returned to Tana and flew north to Diago, where we met our excellent guide Sheilo who explained so much--plants, animals, customs, religion,history, culture in good English. We toured Amber Mountain, the red and gray Tsingy, some villages where we were invited to see a home and meet Sheilo's relatives. Finally to NoseBe for several days with a great village immersion, home-cooked meal, interacting with the children, getting wonderful photos, then return to Tana for a final tour of handicraft market and queen's palace.
