Beautiful hotel in a wonderful place. It's not easy to reach but once you're there you feel like an explorer without the discomfort.... There are roomy bungalows in a lovely garden, a resting area near a tiny pool (not suitable for swimming) and facing a pond and the amazing tsingy. The staff is very kind and caring and they organize... More

This resort is incredible. We stayed here as part of our honeymoon on a tour of Northern Madagascar. The bungalows take you back to nature as are not sealed from the elements but have the mod cons of 24 hour electricity, flushing toilet and hot shower! Be aware though that you will see a few frogs and insects in the... More

This is a truly amazing location. Looking up at the Tsingy escarpment across a small lake and cleverly created as a bush camp but with the comfort and service you would find in a good hotel. The owner and staff are very welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. You are at one with nature so take bug spray as... More

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

I spent only one night here, but I can say that the lodge are delicious, the service excellent and very friendly (all discrete and available), high quality food (served in a typical room), the rooms perfect and essential (as much lodge spacious, comfortable and equipped with the necessary), with the exceptional touch of the Director of the structure (attentive and...

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
