Flew to Antananarivo

Loved it all but especially treks (lemurs) and best of all the island of Sainte Marie and the Princess Boco hotel. I wish we had been there the 4 days as planned. The airline changed the flights so trip was cut short and we had to spend 2 nights in Tana at the end in B&B which was not good as could not go out without a guide and that was a shame. I would go back to the island anytime.
