          We are planning a trip to Madagascar in September. We read about the cyclone Enawo and were wondering whether it impacted the roads from Tana to Andasibe-Mantadia National Park. Did you travel in that area after the cyclone? How were the roads? How long did it take to drive from Tana to Andasibe (we've been told 3 hours and we've been told 6 hours which is a bit of a difference)? Thank you.

          We booked directly at Vakona Lodge and payed (converted) 75 € for one cabin. Each cabin can host 2 people. Breakfast has been 4 € per person. We've been there at the beginning of December 2016.

          Hi I;m hoping to come and stay at Vakona in October with my husband and my children, who are crazy about lemurs! We will be on a round the world trip, so will only have a week or 10 days, so plan to base ourselves at Vakona for most/all of our time. Do we need to hire a car for the duration of our stay, or can we arrange a transfer from the airport to the hotel, and then just hire a car/driver for day trips to the nearby NPs through the hotel? Any advice much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
