We stumbled upon Gandalf Safari while we were looking for other rooms. We were greeted warmly and immediately felt at home with Christina and Claus. The location is excellent and the rooms are very nice and clean, though basic. Breakfast was always abundant and delicious. Christina and Claus were very helpful with advice and infos about the Island and the... More

Having travelled extensively worldwide and stayed in all sorts of accommodation from tents to 5star+ Royal Caribbean cruise liners, Gandalf Safari is undoubtedly the best hospitality I have ever experienced. Klaus (owner) has worked in hospitality all over the world and it certainly showed in his "what more can I do to make my guests time in Reunion unforgettable" attitude.... More

Cosy bed and breakfast based in the South not far from St Pierre airport. We stayed for over a week , firstly it was cost effective but the knowledge from the owners was invaluable and something that we found lacking at hotels on previous trips. Claus the owner was even up at 630 to check on the weather at the... More

My partner and I had planned to go and see the volcano in Reunion but were unable to do so because of bad weather. Therefore we decided to go down to the coast and booked Gandalf Safari Camp in February 2012 for one night. All the rooms are individually themed and we got the Arabic room, which was uniquely decorated... More

I've stayed at Gandalf Safari Camp twice (in Sept 2007 and April 2011) and the hotel is an absolute gem. The five rooms are wonderfully themed, vividly colourful and perfectly comfortable. Each room captures the exotic and diverse nature of la reunion brilliantly. The breakfast is fantastic and consists of bread, fruit, cereals, and exotic jams served outside in the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hi,            my name is Gandalf, I am a Belgium Shepard (Malinois, friends call us affectionately "Malli"). I was born on June 26th, 2006. My home is close to St. Joseph, a city in the green and wild south of the Reunion Island. "Ile de de la Reunion" is a volcanic island in the Indian Ocean, about 800 km east of Madagascar and 180 km SW of its better known and elder sister Mauritius. On the picture, you spot me in Cilaos in the mountains of the island, in frond of the Col de Taibit, the pass towards Mafate. Actually, I am living at the coast, at the foot of an active Vulcan "Piton de la Fournaise" in Manapany les Bains, 200 m away of a protected bay for swimming, I am room mating with Christina, Claus and Eowyn. And of course with guests and friends who are spending their vacation with us. We are living in a guesthouse of Creole style, with 5 individually decorated rooms, porch, tropical garden and lots of smaller and bigger items to make their vacations on this remote island to an unforgettable adventure. Together with us at the GANDALF SAFARI CAMP, a small private Guesthouse on Reunion Island. ... more   less
