Spread among the shade of the Tamarind trees, Mandrare River Camp provides a luxury experience in the rugged wilderness of southeastern Madagascar.
Accommodations at the camp consist of six spacious, fully-equipped, and bespoke luxury tents. Each tent is decorated with individually hand-crafted, ornate wooden furniture including a four-poster bed draped in mosquito netting as well as a bedside table with a lamp, a wardrobe, and dressing table. The en suite bathroom features solar-powered showers, a vanity, and a flush toilet. The private terrace is fitted out with chairs and a table where guests can lounge with a coffee or a good book and take in the stunning views of the river and sacred mountains beyond.
This secluded camp is located on the banks of the Mandrare River in the Antadroy tribal area under the shade of the Ifotaka Community Forest. The revered ancestral forests are home to five different species of lemur including ringtails, Verraux’s Sifaka, white-foot sportive, grey mouse, and grey brown mouse. Madagascar is home to some rare and wonderful animals found nowhere else in the world. There are 300 species of reptiles on the island from to chameleons to geckos to tortoises to the boa constrictor. The island nation is home to some of the world’s tiniest frogs. The local Antandroy tribe devotes their lives to protecting the Sacred Forests where their ancestors rest in their ornate tombs.
