Relais de L'Ankarana

About Relais de L'Ankarana

Simple yet comfortable, it’s the location that makes this lodge so special. Just outside Ankarana Reserve, home to 10 species of lemur and a spectacular spot for wildlife, where you will see the impressive Tsingy and explore the magical forest.

Located within 5 hectares of land which, on first sight, consist of just open savannah plains, turn out to feature some wonderful gardens, where replanted young banana, mango, coconut, lemon and orange trees take their form. 

The lodge is wonderful for that ‘back to nature’ experience, topped of by that traditional Malagasy warmth and hospitality.
