This year’s Ultimate Madagascar tour delivered once again an impressive selection of Malagasy specialities, including excellent views of all of the Ground Rollers, Asitys, Couas and Mesites plus the spectacular Cuckoo Roller and, for those who undertook the extension to the Masoala Peninsula where we saw the incomparable Helmet and the rare Bernier´s Vangas, all of the world´s Vangas too. Aside from the birds we found a fine selection of lemurs and some cracking reptiles too. Despite some hassles, especially concerning flights with Air Madagascar, the tour logistics ran relatively smoothly, at least for Madagascar standards, and the weather throughout was generally fine and sunny.
