Iharana Bush Camp

Top choice campsite in Northern Madagascar

Although not far from Ambilobe, this gorgeous lodge is perfectly placed for exploring the Réserve Spéciale Ankarana. Wattle and daub bungalows are widely spaced for privacy and are beautifully appointed; each has its own deck with views over a lake and the tsingy.

Find the lodge by turning west 7km north of Ambilobe; follow the signposts along the sandy track for 12km.

Electricity is all solar-powered and there are no power points in the bungalows. Excursions include taking a pirogue on the lake and walks into the tsingy. For extra romance, champagne is served at the Ambatomiloloha tsingy lookout point on full-moon nights. An open-air restaurant and bar, massage room and pool complete the picture.
