Tsanga-Tsanga!

There was also some fun involved…well lots to be honest but I won’t go on too much about that…

On the non-working programme, we got to visit some really nice places and went looking for chameleons’ lemurs’, fishing (!) and whale watching (humpbacks). We were lucky enough to see some Siffaka (Propithecus verreauxi); Mark got all the good pics! (If you look at the video, about 2 minutes before the end you get to see them jump along the tree tops, don’t blink or you’ll miss!).

The whale watching was also very successful! We saw quite a lot, and quite close up. The fishermen have a sort of respect for them; being in small pirogues (when compared to the whales), we never got too close to them for fear that they might surface too close to the boat and cap size it. I’ve since learnt that humpbacks are very social and curious of humans, and are keen to come and investigate boats and play.
