Where to stay

Below you can see some of the wonderful places we have recommended for this journey.

Berenty Lodge £££££

  • Madagascar
  • Safari and Wildlife Lodge

Berenty Lodge is perhaps the most well-known property in the region, set in the heart of a private nature reserve allowing some of the best opportunities to observe lemurs up-close, and is naturally very popular with photographers. Each of the 12 simple, but comfortable bungalows are air conditioned and the open feel of the rest of lodge, with shady bomas in the garden are a great place to watch wildlife go by. Whilst the popularity of the lodge does mean it can get very busy at times, this is a simple, no frills lodge with good lemur sightings and some great self-guided trails in the reserve so you can wander to your heart’s content.

Mandrare River Camp £££££

  • Madagascar
  • Safari and Wildlife Lodge

Located in near the southern tip of Madagascar, this is an adventurer’s camp with a dash of style. The handful of large, Meru-style tents are spread out along the banks of the Mandrare River. They are the best place in the country for a genuine, African bush lodge experience. The huge bathrooms are connected to the back of the shady tents and the cool showers are a welcome relief after a day wading through rivers, searching for ancient tombs and exploring lemur filled forests.
