Lemurs. More lemurs than you could shake a stick at. We’re having a few days in the rainforest before our brief UK stopover, and it is GLORIOUS.

We literally stumbled across a family of diademed sifaka (above) having breakfast too. We saw 10 of the 11 lemur species that live here-it’s low season as it’s rainy season, so they are loving the lack of tourists.
