Mandrare River Camp
Mandrare River Camp is a luxury tented camp set on the banks of the Mandrare River in the wild south of Madagascar. The camp offers an authentic wildlife and cultural experience in seven semi-permanent tents, fully en-suite, with a private terrace overlooking the river. The food and service are excellent and the wildlife viewing superb.
The seclusion of the camp affords intimate access and insight to the spiny forest; home to an abundance of wildlife and the fascinating Antandroy tribe that co‐habit this arid and otherworldly landscape. Delicious meals of European and Malagasy-inspired dishes are served on the riverside terrace and in secluded groves on the camp grounds. The camp is solar powered and has fostered excellent relationships with the local communities by supporting schools and clinics and providing employment. Activities in Ifotaka Community forest are organized through the Camp including day and night walks, cultural visits to the local village and school, Antandroy traditional dancing, sundowners on the river bank and in the 'Avenue of the Baobabs'.
Mandrare is easily accessed by a regular shared charter flight in from the capital which departs twice a week during the dry season
