Vakona in the south east is the place to go to see to see indris, which are a must just to hear the remarkable wails they make! Vakona Forest Lodge is a nature lover’s paradise located about 15 minutes drive beyond Andasibe village and on the doorstep of two national parks; Andasibe and Mantadia. Enjoy the vast array of wildlife such as lemurs, giraffe-necked weevils, tenrecs, mouse lemurs, chameleons, crabs and frogs.
Why it’s A Wild Again Favourite
Vakona Forest Lodge is the prime lodge in this region.
Each of the 24 bungalows is neatly set in the lush gardens giving the whole lodge a rustic charm. En-suite bathrooms, an outside living area and balcony add to the quality of the rooms. Feast on the excellent variety of French / Malagasy / Chinese cuisine while taking in the views of the forest.
On canoes explore nearby Lemur Island, which is home to various species of lemur in a reintroduced but open environment. One can wander the well-marked trails in search of colourful chameleons, reptiles, and abundant plant life or for the more adventurous visit the private reserve on horseback or mountain bike.
