A very early start today: your guide and driver will collect you from the lodge after a quick coffee. You will be taken to the starting point of the circuits and with a local guide, set off into the otherworldly spiny bush. (There are two small privately protected parcels of this compellingly unique habitat, to where we take our clients, depending on special interests). Terrain is flat and soil sandy, so grading of the walk is easy. Use trainers to protect your feet from thorns. Your guide will point out various rare, locally endemic birds and tell you about the strange ensemble of bloated and/or drought-resistant plants that create the incredible habitat here. You may also see both Petter's and White-footed sportive lemurs hiding away either in the incredibly thorny Didieracea (Octopus) trees, or in dense bush. After having explored the spiny bush, you will be taken back to your hotel where you can enjoy a late breakfast.
