Right from the start, Carina at NWS was helpful. We explained what we were interested in seeing and she sent us links to several trips. We chose a small group safari and it was incredible.
Our local guide, Mia (I am sure that I am spelling this wrong) was outstanding. His knowledge of the culture, the wildlife, his easy-going ways and his excellent grasp of the English language made the trip even better. For each hike, we had a local guide to lead us - they were also top notch. You could tell that they all loved their jobs and truly cared about the country and its wildlife.
The highlight of the trip was the wildlife. I fell in love with lemurs and we certainly did get to see all of the ones we searched for. In addition, guides pointed out colourful birds, chameleons and frogs. It was incredible. These guides were even excellent at finding nocturnal creatures in the darkness!
