Guest Testimonial

Robin Spanner provided excellent service overall. We received our initial itinerary within 24 hours of our inquiry and subsequent amendments were dealt with even quicker.

Masoala Forest Lodge is situated on a clearing on a beach on the Masoala Peninsula in the North East of Madagascar. The lodge consists of five safari tents, all under thatch and built on platforms. Each tent has a verandah with hammocks where you can relax after lunch. Bathroom facilities with hot water are a short walk away from the tent in separate huts.

The eco-tourism activities of the Masoala Forest Lodge forms part of an international conservation program for the Masoala Peninsula with the aim of providing a source of sustainable income for the local communities. Closed February and March.
