This is a nice and comfortable place with a good restaurant and friendly staff. We came in directly from the National Park after a very long day of walking and the cold drinks we were greeted with were just heavenly at that moment. This place is used by a lot of tour groups so sometimes it gets busy and making... More

If you are going to Madagascar, you MUST stop here. It is away from the beaten track, and has a special feeling about it. Not only are the people friendly and the food and bedrooms excellent, they are also trying to help the local community. They are helping the school and the infirmary which serves several villages which is very... More

We arrived at the hotel without a reservation and were lucky that they had room to pitch one more tent. The grounds are nicely kept and the accommodations vary from bungalows to big canvas tents to camping tents - we had the later and were pleased to find them very comfortable (they put a mattress in there and give you...

We hiked to Camp Catta from Pic Boby and arrived full of great energy. Good news first: The Camp's physical setting is lovely, the beer in the restaurant was cold, and the view from the pool was excellent (seating and service issues aside). Ring-tailed lemurs were on our cottage roof at 4am, and it was great fun to spend the... More

This hotel was one of the highlights of our trip and well worth the 20km drive down a dirt track. The setting is spectacular and we were greeted by the camps friendly catta lemurs when we arrived. Food was amazing could not believe how good as we were in the middle of nowhere. Our local guide justin was a local... More

We stayed for 3 nights and had one of the larger bungalow which was clean with a comfortable bed. The en suite was a good size with hot water. Electric is limited and there is less choice for food, but considering its location Camp Catta offers a good selection. The staff speak limited English so it is best to have... More

the scenery from the camp is wonderful, and so are the various possible day walks. the camp itself is well integrated and sightings of maki catta numerous. that said, the camp really caters for walkers and no extra luxury is to be expected. food at the restaurant is average at best and not exactly cheap, electricity is only available for...

Camp catta is a very nice place to relax after hiking in Andringitra (or to explore the surroundings from there.) We had a rustic bungalow with private bathroom. It was very nice, but very small (barely enough space on the floor to open the suitcase). But you can sit at or in front of the restaurant to read and relax,... More

This is more than a camp. While they still have the platform tents, the new adobe rooms are great, comfortable and cute in design and function. Hiking here is varied and beautiful just out your door. Village is a nice walk across the valley. Swimming pool is one of the best. This place is perfect and even the food and... More

A wonderful setting and lots of lemurs running around. The food was great although the choice is limited given the distance to the nearest town. Upon check-in, we were shown to our room which was a nice plush bungalow (B10). Two hours later we were told we were not meant to be in THAT bungalow but a "rustic" one (B3).... More
