In 2017 I had the pleasure of placing myself in the hands of Diary as I embarked on my first visit to Madagascar. I’m Grady Brand a keen plant loving person from Western Australia having worked for many years in the Western Australian Botanic Garden – Kings Park as the Senior Horticultural Curator, with a keen desire to absorb the natural world. So where better to spend my time on holidays than in one of the most biodiverse rick places on earth – Madagascar.

I found Diary understanding of the cultural and natural richness of his country to be extraordinary and his willingness to incorporate other specialist guides during our journey made for an experience which was unforgettable.

Diary empathy and love for his people, their education, his country, its protection and future is nothing short of inspirational. A special person and guide!
