  • Its heaven on earth
  • We stayed at Arol Lodge, and it was like paradise. No cell coverage, so just let the mobile stay in the bag and enjoy the beach, jungle, village and people instead.

  • The Maroantsetra region shelters the rare Aye Aye in Madagascar's Masoala National Park rain forests. The Aye Aye is known for its long, skeletal middle finger, fox like ears and rodent-like teeth. If you want to try and spot the elusive aye aye in the wild then head north-east in Madagascar
