Tribes Overall:

Rwanda and Malawi were excellent- Madagascar great experience but too much hard work and stress!

Tribes Service:

Very helpful people , paperwork not always accurate. Beautiful book, quite a lot of typos in it!

Guides:

Again this varied. Rwanda and Malawi everyone was really helpful and nearly everything of a really good standard. Madagascar nobody really had English that was good enough to cope. The drivers tried hard and their driving was good.

Madagascar

As described so what I expected but pretty basic and one night would have been plenty. Everyone else went onto Belo and Tsingy after one night. The forest walks only take 2 hours, not 4 as in your itinerary and there was little to do otherwise.
