Situated about 16 km from the town Ambilobe (about 5 - 6 hours drive from Diego Suarez or 3 - 4 hours from Ankify) Iharana Bush Camp has 18 bungalows with en suite facilities (showers not bath tub).
The design reflects a unique crossover between traditional Malagasy and African styling.
From the terraces, sunsets are marvelous and views of Ankarana are truly alluring. The kitchen and restaurant create the atmosphere of a bush camp and food is mostly locally sourced and excellent.
The camp is about 90 minutes drive from the Park HQ and about 15 minures walk to the 'tsingy'.
5 bungalows have lake and tsingy views, with private terrace. One bungalow has a partial view of the lake & tsingy, with terrace. 8 of the bungalows are in the gardens and do not have terraces or lake views.
Activities and facilities:
The lodge has a small swimming pool. A variety of activities are on offer, including pirogue (boat) trips on the lake (lovely in the late afternoons especially), walks/hikes to the tsingy and to Iharana Cave (about 3 hours), visit to Mandresy Cave (about 2 - 3 hours), and sundowners on the viewing platform. There are bicycle rides and also visits to the villages nearby. Note that there are no aircons or fans (breezy weather between April and November). The camp is closed annually from 15 December to 15 March. Wifi is intermittent and in the main reception building only.
