The lemurs of Madagascar's Andasibe forest have been able to enjoy their island paradise tourist-free for months, after the Indian Ocean nation imposed movement restrictions to limit the spread of Covid-19. But struggling tourist facilities breathed a small sigh of relief at the start of September when local nature-lovers were finally allowed to travel to the reserve, a four-hour drive east of the capital Antananarivo. They now eagerly await the resumption of international flights, which bring visitors from across the world eager to catch a glimpse of the island's emblematic primates.
