Best campsites and lodges in Madagascar
Based on the experience of our own and those of other road trippers, see an overview of our favourite campsites & lodges in Madagascar so that you can book the accommodation yourself. Although some lodges have a website and reservation form, many respond poorly to emails. Better to call directly and/or just show up on time.
We strongly recommend that you start and/or end your roadtrip from Ivato, which is close to the airport and our office. Antananarivo is highly congested with mostly one-way streets, and it will be a nightmare to try to find your hotel in your rental car. Better to visit Tana as a day trip from Ivato by taxi, or take a taxi from the airport to your hotel in Tana. If you do want to spend the night in Tana, look at our suggestions. These hotels have private parking so that we can do the car-hand over.
The lodges in this section are categorised according to pricing on the basis of a double room, bed only.
- Budget - € is up to € 15 for a double room
- Mid-Range - €€ is up to € 50
- Deluxe - €€€ is unlikely to cost more than € 125 per room.
Campsites do not require any advance arrangements - most of them can't even be booked in advance.
