Day 190 Nosy Be, Madagascar (Part 1 of 2)

One of the best days yet!!!!  I have been waiting to get to Madagascar for a long time and the wait was certainly worth it……  Corrine & I went on a tour of Lokobe Natural Reserve of Nosy Be with Aart, Ellen, Del & Linda.  We were looking for Lemurs, chameleons, snakes and whatever other creatures came our way and we weren’t disappointed.   We travel by van to Ambatozavavy village where we walked out to a boat for a short distance because of low tides and headed for Ampasipohy village where we would enter the reserve.  Talk about low tides, they had to push the boat off sand bars and for quit a distance before we all had to get off.  We walked probably close to a mile through knee deep water, ankle deep water and muck to get to the shore.  The trip was certainly worth it.  What an amazing day seeing all the wildlife.  Some was very unique like the miniature chameleon that I took photos of in Aart’s hand.  The lemurs were fabulous and the colorful chameleons were stunning.  It was a great, great day!!!  Oh, by the way….  Took a lot of photos so this is part 1 of 2 parts.
