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!
The next day we started early in the morning to go on a long trek to see the Grey Tsingy. It was very tiring and hot but it was all worth it in the end. When we got there we went across the 50 metre long hanging bridge where you could get an outstanding view. There was a Japanese film crew filming the lemurs on it.
Later on, when it was a little bit cooler, we set off to see the bat cave. The walk wasn’t very long but when we got there we had to go down hundreds of steps then climb up to the cave! The cave was pitch black so we needed torches to see where we were going and when we got far enough into the cave there were so many bats you could not even start to count them.
When we got back out into the fresh air we started to climb the several hundred steps back up to the top and on the way back we spotted lots of creepy crawlies.
That was the end of our safari but the adventure was not over yet. The next day we set off to Nosy Sakatia to have a bit of relaxation on this pristine tiny island and to snorkel with turtles and do lots of diving!
