Mandrare River Camp is an exclusive offer from Madagascar, a camp on the banks of the river Mandrare. It is located on the southern tip of Madagascar, 3 km from Ifotaka. The camp is nestled in a shady grove of native trees, next to a beautiful sandy beach and near the forest with ancestral graves and a large variety of flora and fauna endemic. The Mandrare is an oasis in this arid and dry region, attracting a wide diversity of wildlife. A large terrace extends along the water, allowing you to enjoy a panoramic view of all the activities while you sip an iced drink slowly. The accommodation consists of six canvas safari tents perched on the edge of the river with a beautiful view of the water. Each tent is spacious with large windows and roof vents to allow air to circulate, and equipped with mosquito nets to ward off mosquitoes. This is not camping in the traditional sense, with 4 poster beds, a coated canvas wardrobe, dressing table with mirror and bedside tables with lamps. Your tent overlooking an outdoor veranda where you can relax and enjoy the beauty of the environment. The bathroom is connected to the back of the tent with a shower stall, toilet and sink. Mandrare River Camp is definitely unique. Seasonal camp on the southern tip of Madagascar, it has only six tents and assured eun maximum of 12 people. In addition, it is located in a secluded area so you do not have to share the wonders of wildlife with other resorts or lodges. Mandrare on the river, the area is full of wildlife and exceptional flora. The sacred forests are home Ifotaka sacred graves and 4 species of lemurs: Ring Tailed, Verreuxs sifaka, mouse and white feet (and maybe a 5th!). Bird watching is world class with over 15 resident species and you can spot all this while walking with one of the guides, day and night. The stargazing on the beach at night is amazing, kilometers from any sign of civilization. And you can visit the local tribe Antandroy see their traditional lifestyle, competitions struggle and contribute to their development. NB: Mandrare River Camp runs from April 1 to November 15, with a minimum stay of 3 nights.

Private terrace with chairs and table - 4 poster mosquito netted bed - Wardrobe and dressing table - Bedside lights and tables - 24hr solar lighting and hot water - Fully plumbed bathroom - Hand carved wooden furniture - Baggage trunk.
