Stay at Mandrare River Camp
A stay with Edd, Madagascar Classic Camping's owner, in this remote part of the dry south is arguably one of the best experiences on offer in the entire country.
Mandrare River Camp, MadagascarOur rating: First Class
Mandare River Camp is set in the Ifotaka Community Forest. There are six tents, set up under tamarind trees. The tents are very comfortable and have beds, simple wardrobes and en-suite bathrooms with showers and toilet.
A full camp crew looks after you and the atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. The sun rises directly in front of the tents over the Mandare River giving breathtaking early morning views. At night, with absolutely no light pollution the stars are the best you'll see anywhere in Africa.
Far from civilization the camp is incredibly peaceful and a fantastic place from which to explore this unique part of the world.
