Madagascar Music. The musical rhythm of Madagascar’s Verreaux’s sifaka lemur when they decend to the ground. On the ground their bipedal locomotion of hops and leaps are as magical as the country itself.
Madagascar is a mission, plain and simple. It is a mission to travel to, a mission to get around, and a now a mission to save. Nothing is even remotely simple in the most wildlife diverse country on the planet. I have been very fortunate to have spent almost 5 weeks on this magical island, these are my favorite images.
The toughest negotiator in Madagascar. She stood smack in front of one of the most beautiful baobabs on the island and only would move for cash U.S. I refused to negotiate. She made as many faces as possible at me until I finally caught one when she didn’t think I was looking.

The Baldhiker has South Africa firmly on his horizon this year! You will be able to follow this journey as always here via ‘Where is Baldy?‘ plus the blog posts as per norm. Maybe when I book flights to South Africa I can take in a transit across to this gorgeous looking land for unique adventure and learning. Will definitely look into this after seeing these pics.
