Do not miss Camp Catta.There may be more beautiful spots in Madagascar than Camp Catta, but I doubt it. This really is paradise. We spent several days here in late 2016. The location, way deep off decent roads, in a valley surrounded by magnificent mountains is quiet, peaceful, perfect. The cabins are a bit dark, but the grounds are stunning....

Beautiful setting at the foot of a huge rock formation. Hiking and rock climbing popular. Bungalows comfortable and the pool an added bonus. The highlight is the numerous Ring Tailed Lemurs that hang around the Camp, unafraid.

After calling ahead to confirm that there was a bungalow available, my friend and I arrived at around 5pm. We wanted to stay two nights, and were offered a choice of bungalow or camp tent. We chose the bungalow, even though it was twice as expensive as the prices listed in the Lonely Planet guidebook (181,000 ariary instead of 90,000...

Very good place to stay in Tsaranoro valley, comfortable clean tents, tasty food and drinks, polite staff. A lot of lemurs at the territory of the camp made our staying more attractive. Special point is the swimming pool with view on Tsaranoro mountain. It's unforgettable to swim with such view or meet the sunrise while swimming.

We spent two nights here. We were booked into the permanent tents but when we saw how small they were, we paid extra to have one of their comfort chalets. These were lovely with a large room downstairs, bathroom and mezzanine floor with another bed. From the door we have a fantastic view over the valley, framed by flowering trees....

Amazing two days spent at Camp Catta to discover the Tsaranoro Valley. Breath taking view from Cameleon Mount was worth the 5 hours walk. Catta lemurs were everywhere and so friendly. The bungalow was very clean, nicely done with a great view over the valley. A must along the RN7.

Location of the camp is perfect. You can find lots of ring tailed lemurs there - even in the camp. There were no english speaking guide during our visit, but it is possible to do some hikes without guide.

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...
