The lodge is formed of 25 beautifully designed rooms and is well located for exploring both Andasibe and Mantadia national parks.

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.
