Our Family Holiday
The magic all started in the rainforests of Amber Mountain. The first animal that caught our eye was the very common gecko, which appeared to be a little bit camera shy. Although we didn’t see many lemurs in the Amber Mountain Reserve the ones that we did see were incredible. As well as all of this we saw some astonishing waterfalls. We were also lucky enough to see some staggeringly astounding views like the green lake. Our guide was great, he knew everything about everything!
I loved seeing the amazingly camouflaged leaf-tailed gecko.
We also did a night walk in Amber Mountain which was fantastic to see the different animals that come out at night.
The next adventure started with a rather bumpy car journey to the Ankarana Reserve. The road's well worn, due to the heavy wind and rain that is quite common at certain times of the year. On the way to Ankarana we stopped to see the incredible Red Tsingy the erosion of rocks, which really was beautiful but you were not allowed to touch it in case you accidentally broke it.
As soon as we got to Ankarana we went straight to the wildlife reserve and the first thing that happened was that two lemurs were just sitting about two metres away from us as soon as we got out of the car!
