    1000 Views of Madagascar trip 2016
    This was our second trip with Jenman. We booked this as a private tour for my husband & myself so that we could go at our own pace & were very happy that we did. We were able to add extra days at 3 different locations so that we had plenty of wildlife time. We also wanted to have a variety in the accommodations & upgraded at a couple of the parks. Grace’s Lodge had good food & an amazing staff. Our 80+ year old waitress made this place a delightful experience. Our driver Jimmy was excellent & was able to provide many details about the locals through all of the areas that we went through. We had excellent local guides for all of our hikes. Madagascar is an amazing country with spectacular scenery in addition to the lemurs, chameleons and birds. One of our unexpected highlights was our snorkeling tour via canoe to the reef near Ifaty. The staff at the Bellevue in Ifaty went above & beyond to make our stay perfect. They had the best food in all of Madagascar. I usually don’t like the stops for seeing how things are made but loved each stop we made in Madagascar. It makes you appreciate what an effort is for just basic living in such a poor country.
