It is about 4hrs drive to the south of Diego Suarez - the journey entails some bumpy and potholed stretches of road, especially the last 17km after having passed by Marotaolana village.
The camp, which is accessible from May to November, has 10 spacious chalets each with en-suite bathrooms (with shower) and queen-sized beds. Two can accommodate families. Mosquito netting is provided in those where the whole bungalow is not netted. Some have traditional Antakarana-style finishing of the interior walls.
The restaurant and bar/lounge area includes a large, elevated deck with comfortable white sofas, from where views over the surroundings take in some of the forest. Solar power is utilised and electricity is provided 24/7. The staff are all from nearby villages, notably Anjahankely and the manager, Mme Osna, a former teacher who leads a local womens' association, ensures that guests are well taken care of.
Food is good, particularly the Malagasy 'romazava' stews: we loved the traditional dishes here during our October 2018 visit.
