Vakona Lodge, Andasibe, Madagascar

Going to see the lemurs in Madagascar had been on our list for a long time. We chose Vakona Lodge because of its close proximity to Andasibe National Park and to visit Lemur Island at the lodge.

It takes about 3 hours to get up to the lodge from Tana, on windy roads and crazy drivers that like pass on blind corners. It is not safe to drive on the roads after dark.
