Montagne d'Ambre National Park

Next we were off to Diego Suarez, in the north, from which we were driven about 100 km on pretty bad roads, lined with very poor villages where many of the men work in the sapphire mines - clearly they don't garner much of the profits - to Montagne d'Ambre National Park

They made a nice warm surface for a gecko to warm up on - just look at that foot!


 We had a reasonably productive night walk here, but the flash on my camera had gone on strike, so the pickings are slim:
