  1. LDTM Car Hire Madagascar- I had a poor experience with the owner of the company; he tried to overcharge us an extra day and asked his driver to drop us ( two families with kids!) out on the side of the road when I refused. The car- Hyundai Starex 4 x 4 – sliding door fell off, rear windows do not open, no A/C. Driver was safe and civil.

    The dorms in Montagne d’Ambre NP has dismantled and the campsite can only been used by larger groups for safty reasons

    The road from Vohemar to Ambilobe is in dreadful condition but if you have the time well worth the experience. It took us 12 hours by 4×4, including a 1 hour visit to Campement Tattersalli to see the Golden Crown Sifaka (and a minor car breakdown, involving cooling off the motor with river water…) and we were completely orange from the dust, but it was a great experience.

    Subsequent stay at Iharana Bush Camp was superb: friendly staff and good food. They now have warm water using solar power (the Guide mentions that it has cold water only).

    Hotel Les Paillottes de Babaomby has upgraded its tents to comfortable bungalows. Nice and laidback place with friendly staff and good food (communal dining is the standard).
