Attention to detail and timely response. Company policy to chose to only communicate with the 'lead traveller' was inappropriate as I was travelling with a friend not a family member. Similarly financial receipts were handled the same way. All communications should have gone to both of us without differentiation."

Nosy Mangabe (Mangabe Island in Malagasy) is a small island reserve in Antongil Bay, the largest bay in Madagascar. The bay is about 60 km long and 30 km wide, formed by the Masoala peninsula on its eastern side. It faces the Indian Ocean, on the NE coast of Madagascar. Nosy Mangabe is just three kilometres south of the mainland town of Maroantsetra. It is part of the larger Masoala National Park complex, a tropical rainforest preserve and sanctuary for the aye-aye species of lemur. An overnight stay is recommended for seeing the nocturnal aye-aye.

The island has a history of trading and piracy, and on the west side of the island are rock carvings by Dutch sailors from the 16th C. In the 17th C the area was invaded by the French who established a trading post. Today there are no permanent settlements on the island. It is covered by dense rain forests with an annual rainfall is 4000 mm. The extremely rare aye-aye were brought to the island in 1960 to preserve the species, hunted elsewhere for superstitious reasons. It has rodent-like teeth that perpetually grow and a special thin middle finger.

There are four other species of lemur on the island, more easily spotted during the day. There are also several birds and a good number of reptiles and amphibians: leaf tailed geckos, frogs, sea turtles, chameleons, small snakes and an endemic boa. From June to September humpback whales can be seen from the beach. There are some rock inscriptions left by Dutch sailors during the 16th C on a beach called Plage des Hollandais.
