Ifaty is a beachy area with blue water and a few baobob trees here and there.



11/1/2017: We went on a hike into a baobob forest where the trees are quite cool in a dry forest type of habitat.

11/2/2017: We went back into the forest to look for missed species. Special shout-out to the Flatid Leaf Bug which has incredible camouflage in both nymph and adult stages.
