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.
Once refreshed, head to the lodge's very own private beach on the banks of the river, where fires are lit and sundowners enjoyed. Afterwards, legendary chef Luni (said as it sounds) serves up the most delicious food in the wildest of settings - including snacks in your very own Avenue of Baobabs under a starry milky way.
Be aware that access to the camp is through a local sisal plantation - not attractive but an important resource in the region. However, once in camp, the plantation is completely out of sight and most activities take place on the opposite of the river, which is completely unspoilt
