I remember the first time I arrived at this beautiful bush camp. We sat on the terrace and contemplated the sun set on the Tsingy. Beautiful colors, with nuances of pink and orange. The service is perfect and sleeping in the nature is unforgettable.

What a fantastic place - in the middle of the bush - at a beautiful lake shore with a magnificent view onto the Tsingy's. All amenities constructed in Eco style. Practical and absolutely unique. Pirogue trip on lake and walk around to the Tsingy's to recommend. A place for couples, friends solo or families. I recommend 2 nights to ensure... More

Yes Ok the 'road' in is bumpy but what the heck - gorgeous lakeside location with cabins open to the wind and air. Beautifully worked chameleons wait to welcome you and the art work is unique. The restaurant has an open air section overlooking the lake and is crammed with catch the eyes. It is safe - but do remember... More

We stayed here for two nights. I would generally have given this a higher rating, but for us the stay was marred on the second night by the worst night's sleep we've had in a hotel, due to load music from a nearby village celebration - which continued until 5.30 am. Not the hotel's fault, and they were very apologetic... More

Me and my husband stayed one night at Iharana Bush Camp on our honeymoon. The drive from Ankify (closest port if you're coming from Nosy Be) is 3 hours mainly thanks to the potholes in the road and final dirt track to access the camp - but the camp is certainly worth the travel time! If you're looking for a... More

We stayed here through Rainbow Tours - it was the highlight of our stays in the national parks. The setting is magnificent - a view from the verandah across a natural lake to a limestone scarp - verdant with greenery (in July) and teeming with birds (bee eaters, kingfishers, white egrets, yellow billed storks flying back at night, black kites...

What a place! Iharana Bush Camp is literally in the middle of nowhere, about 40 mins drive down a sandy track off the main route. It is set next to a large lake with tsingy fringing the lake and an abundance of wildlife. Do not expect luxury - this is truly a bush camp, no doors, windows or hot water... More
