Yes. Finally. After 6 and a half hour drive, we were there. Checking in Feon'ny ala. It was only 14:30u. Way to go! After dropping our stuff, we walked to the entrance of the Perinet Park to check out what to do. It was just a 30 minutes walk, so that wasn't that hard. Taking a look at their beautiful visitors centre we met Fidi. He was a guide and his English was at first appearance reasonably good. Thus, we promoted him to our guide. We told our plans: We like to visit Perinet, Mantadia and we liked to do a nocturnal walk. Maybe it was even possible to contact with Mad'arbres, a company organizing canopy tours. According to Fidi, he could arrange the first two, the other things we had to arrange it by ourselves, because the night walk and canopy tour were clearly separated activities not organized bij ANGAP (what is now called "Madagascar National Parks".
It was not all happiness, we found out later. Our bed was bad; old, sunken in and smelled like fungus. We had a bad first night. Eventually, we made some ingenious solutions with some cloths, so we tackled the 2nd problem. The other ones, we had to get use to it.
