    Andasibe is a big National and protected park. Is the only place in the world you can see the biggest Lemur, the indri indri. And hear them shouting. Is a great experience.
    Then you have lunch at a very nice place inside Vakona Reserve.

    After that you are taken to the opposite: a private zoo. You get into cages to see the animals close. You can have the photo with the lemur in your shoulder but you should know they are kept in captivity, there are no families or new lémures. They take them from the forest to put them in those cages (islands, but they look as small cages).
    Then you visit another zoo, with +50 crocodiles... that they feed every week. So again, a big cage.
    The trip from Tana is awesome. The landscape is great, full of rice fields, little villages and the rain forest.
