Accommodation

Below you can see some of the wonderful places we recommend you stay on your journey.

Vakona Forest Lodge £££££

  • Madagascar
  • Safari and Wildlife Lodge

One of the most established lodges in the area, Vakona Forest Lodge sits in its own private reserve, so you get extra wildlife for your money along with plenty of rainforest. The creepers, plants and flowers that seem to grow all around you add to the atmosphere before you even step inside the small, but charming rooms. Hot water bottles keep the chills at bay (it can be damp in the forest!) as does the large open fire, that sits in the centre of the octagonal main dining room and bar, looking out across the lodges very own lake. There is even a semi-wild, Lemur Island in the grounds, great for kids who want a hands-on wildlife experience, or grown-up photographers who want some great animal shots.

Andasibe Hotel £££££

  • Madagascar
  • Safari and Wildlife Lodge

One of the newest lodges in the area, each of the huge split level rooms are clean and comfortable with plenty of space to relax in. The large restaurant serves lovely French and Malagasy cuisine, especially from their a la carte menu. The setting of the lodge is also great, looking out across the lush rice paddies and local village in the distance, which can be explored by mountain bikes offered by the lodge free of charge. The local Malagasy family who runs the lodge are charming, and go out of their way to offer one of the warmest welcomes in the region – but like most good places in Andasibe, rooms are highly sought after so book early. The Andasibe-Mantadia National Park offers an exceptional wildlife experience.
