Setam Lodge

Ranomafana National Park, Madagascar

Setam Lodge is one of the newest hotels at Ranomafana National Park located, just a kilometre from the park gate. The lodge is built on the side of a hill, with lovely views over Ranomafana. It provides comfortable accommodation with 20 rooms in ten bungalows. Each of the spacious rooms is equipped with a fan, en suite facilities with hot water and a private verandah.  (Note that while the hotel is comfortable, it is 'no-frills' -  there are no particularly good hotels at Ranomafana). 


The airy restaurant offers reasonable dining though the menu is quite limited and vegetarians may prefer to dine elsewhere. The restaurant and bar open onto a terrace which allows the option of outdoor dining. The continental breakfasts include fresh juice, bread and pastries and hot drinks. The hotel offers a laundry service.

Some English is spoken. For this hotel, we advise guests to leave all valuables in the hotel safe while out exploring during the day.

'Overall holiday satisfaction: Excellent.  (26 September 2015 Madagascar Wildlife Small Group set departure).  Vegetarian food was excellent everywhere. This is partly due to Gersica's diligence in ringing ahead to each hotel. Thanks again for a most memorable trip'
