Madagascar: Disembarkation...

For our third and final day on the river we motored towards the coast - disembarking on a river bank at Belo Sur Tsiribihina.
A four hour incredibly bumpy cross country car journey later - only stopping in a nearby town to collect some more sweets to give local kids - and we were in our lodge close to Tsingy de Bemaraha. To get to the magnificent 5 star Soleil des Tsingy we first needed to take a wooden car ferry which with a 2-ton 4x4 was a wobbly experience I can tell you. Still, once arrived we had hot showers, Wi-Fi, waiter service, a great sunset and good food. Fab. 
But tinged with a bit of tourist guilt with the poverty so close at hand...
