Spent 24 hours at Andasibe to spot for lemur. Wildlife spotting was good, guides work together to share the sightings. Sightings are generally good, but lemur tend to get higher than other primates so it’s harder to photograph without at least a 200mn lens
But throughout the experience couldn’t help but think it wasn’t the rainforest experience I was expecting. I’ve been through rainforest in Congo, Brazil, Indonesia etc and this didn’t come close.
After leaving I found out Andasibe National Park is actually replanted forest which explains why the tree cover seemed so young
So overall I’m a bit conflicted. It’s good to go an try to preserve the wildlife, but also it perfectly captures the problem in Madagascar where the deforestation problem is worse than anywhere I’ve been.
