I downloaded an eBook guide for the first time, finding it very useful and accessible but taking a bit of getting used to. It's a shame the online maps are no longer available and I'm not sure how I'll take it with me on the trip as I'm not planning to take my laptop with me. Info is as solid as ever though!
In classic LP style, writers Ham, Butler, Filou, and Ranger share great insights to this amazing country. Thoughtful caveats about muddy roads in the northeast, great eats in the capitol, and tips on seeing extraordinary wildlife all over the island complement fascinating insights into local culture and history. Beautiful photos to inspire are included along with practical advice about getting around and where to stay -- no matter one's budget. Madagascar has been a dream trip for me, and this volume is shoring up my desire to visit as an informed guest of the Malagasy!
