Situated about 16 km from the town of Ambilobe, Iharana Bush Camp has eight bungalows with en suite facilities (showers not bath tub). The design reflects a unique crossover between traditional Malagasy and African styling. Note that the bathrooms and bedrooms are on separate levels, and there is no banister on the stairs between the two floors. From the terraces, sunsets are marvelous and views of Ankaranaare truly alluring. The kitchen and restaurant create the atmosphere of a bush camp and food is mostly locally sourced and excellent.
'Vakona Forest Lodge, Andasibe: lovely location.
Allamanda Hotel, Antsiranana: the food was very good.
Litchi Tree, Montagne d'Ambre: Friendly and characterful.
Iharana Bush Camp, Ankarana: accommodation a bit too basic; got bitten in bed
Eden Lodge: Lovely place'

'Your brochure offered us a suitable trip with option to customise sample tour. We had a wonderful trip. Food at Litchi Tree and location at Iharana Bush Camp wonderful. Sakatia Lodge is very friendly. We enjoyed snorkelling especially with Whale sharks!! As we are not divers, a magical experience. Very lucky to be there at right time of year to see Whale sharks'

'Vakona Forest Lodge has nice grounds. Easy walk to Lemur Island if we had not already been driven there. Food better than average. Litchi Tree excellent. Seemed willing to consider any limitations on diet (we had none). Menu at Iharana Bush Camp limited but well prepared. Effort to provide individual and friendly service. Didn't mind the wildlife in the room.
Overall planning for a two-week tour was excellent an was tailored to our abilities anthe season. We wanted a more generalised tour than, for example, a birding trip, an got it. I am also interested in loca life an the guides were able to point ou and explain what we observed and something of the overall status of Madagascar. We commend all the drivers who hd to deal with the chaotic traffic on the decrepit roads. The vehicles provided were all comfortable. Recommend to add Tsingy Rouges to the itinerary'
