    The lodge was superbly located for us as we spent 3 days visiting the nearby Perinet/Andasibe National Park. The facilities of the lodge/ hotel were good as was the service and food and the staff could not have been more helpful.

    We stayed here during a birding/nature trip to Madagascar. Our cabins were great and we had some of the best food here of our entire trip. Its quite a beautiful place tucked into the hills. I highly recommend it.

    This Lodge offers all the amenities in a beautiful setting adjacent to the Mantadia Primary Rain Forest. We came to see the forest and endemic plants and animals. We were not disappointed, since our local guide helped us spot many lemurs, birds, chameleons, and frogs.
