New Trip Report: Madagascar
Here’s another report from Phil Gregory – a logistically challenging, but wildlife rich trip.
Madagascar, 2015: Phil Gregory, 16 days & 18 species including Aye Aye, Fossa, Amber Mountain Mouse Lemur and Verreaux’s Sifaka.
Has anyone else seen Aye Ayes at Pangalenes… I don’t think I have heard of this site?
If I remember correctly from research undertaken for a Madagascar trip in 2017, the Palmarium Hotel re-located some Aye-Ayes to their land in the Pangalanes Canals area and they are now a tourist attraction. The hotel (and the Aye-Ayes) are surrounded by a lake. I believe that the Hotel staff leave coconuts which have been cut open, jammed between tree branches for the Aye-Aye to feed on, which provides photographic opportunities.
I didn’t visit there myself, so I may not be correct. I’m sure others will be able to provide more precise information.
