      Nosey Tanikely / Nosey Komba and lemurs

      March 18 in Madagascar ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

      On these two small islands there are more lemurs and chameleons. Much to our surprise lemurs were everywhere. When they hear voices they know bananas are near. We are given banana to encourage them to jump on our shoulders they are light and gentle. So funny to watch as they peer down on us with curiosity. The males are less forthcoming knowing the females will chase them away.

      A delightful walk albeit hot and humid to the top through a line of colourful shops and small stalls. On the beach we see chameleons, very brightly coloured, iridescent green ( male), the female is orange.

      People are encouraged to support the lemurs resulting in a booming tourist trade. I have local currency with so few opportunities to spend the local Madagascan Ariary. I still have €12 worth, I buy a necklace and earrings. These islands were a trip highlight.
