Lemurs are no longer spending a majority of their time sheltering from the heavy rains, but are out in the open. Spotting many kinds of lemurs and reptiles becomes an effortless task as the Sifaka lemurs can be seen skipping across the sand, and indri stand out against the vibrant green leaves of the rainforests.
Although the wet season has officially ended there is still the possibility of considerable downpours so be prepared for these when travelling within May. We can’t predict the rain, but we can always be prepared, and a nice shower can lead to excellent photography, and add a real sense of adventure to your journey.
May is also an opportunity to enjoy Nosy Be’s Donia Festival, where they celebrate home-grown music and sport.
