For an adventure off the beaten track, come to Mandrare River Camp. Discover endemic fauna and flora of Madagascar with Malagasy culture.
Mandrare River Camp is located off the beaten track, in the remote South of Madagascar, 3 hours from Fort Dauphin (Tolagnaro). Nestled in the shade of tamarind trees on the Mandrare River banks which is the region driving force; and supporting the Antandroy village of Ifotaka and its sacred ancestral forests, the camp offers exclusive access to one of the most unique ecosystems in the world. Discover this rare and important environment up close; immerse yourself in Madagascar’s biological and cultural diversity.
Charming tents combine the authentic charm of the bush with upscale accommodation comfort. Each site offers a breathtaking view of the Mandrare River and helps create the perfect space to relax after an exploring day of the most unique and remote places in Madagascar.
As the sun rises over the mountains, the distant singing of Antandroy women as they fetch water from the river welcomes you for a new day at Mandrare River Camp.
