Ampijeroa and neighboring communities

 

 Our campsite was located in the village of Ambodimanga. The local women's group ran the camp and fed us (very well!). A mile or so down the road was the village of Ampijeroa, closest to the park headquarters. Then a couple miles down the road the other direction was Andranofasika, a bustling metropolis of about 2000 people. I took a lot of pictures of people in these three communities.

I also shot a lot of pictures of the animals we commonly saw in the forest. I've included some photos from books as well.

On this page you can link to three photo galleries with my favorite pictures of humans and critters.
