Just a quick post today to share a video of a Sifaka Lemur. These lemurs have a very unique style of locomotion that I think is impossible to watch without smiling or laughing. So this is the last post I have auto-scheduled, so hopefully by…

This gecko I actually spotted myself as we strolled through an arboretum. I was happy with myself for being able to find it with how well it seems to camoflage against that tree.

This is a leaf chameleon – something I had hoped to see, but was expecting would not happen. Luckily, one of our guides during the one hike was phenomenal and found one – in fact, when he found it, I was lagging behind the group…

A close up of a ring-tailed lemur – shots like this make it worth carrying that large, heavy telephoto lens… (and this isn’t even the closest portrait I have, but you’ll have to wait a bit more for the other one).

The second day of driving on our overland tour took us thought completely different ecosystems – actually, that is something pretty awesome so far. The first few days in Ivato and Antananarivo, there were plenty of coniferous trees (which surprised me) mixes with tropical plants.…

Another chameleon for you all today. Our guides spotted this one literally within two minutes of us starting on our hike that day. I had hoped that it would mean we would see them everywhere, but disappointingly they are much less common than I was…

Today’s post is from the first day of driving, so only a bit south of the capital of “Tana” – the buildings here are constructed mostly brick covered with some sort of stucco and in my opinion look fantastic. Combined with the sweeping vistas and…

And after that lemur post, I have to go to the other iconic Madagascar animal with a chameleon… sorry, I don’t know what species this is, but I know it is the female of the species – the male is similarly patterned but grey in…

Hi everyone! Sorry for the lack of posts so far – it has been a bit crazy with getting in country and then after a few days in Ivato (just outside of the capital of Antananarivo), we set off on the four day overland tour…

Just a quick post to share a couple photos from exploring the city of Antananarivo. I have a couple other photos on the real camera and I’ll try and upload them later this evening… We leave tomorrow for the overland tour and I highly doubt…
