Lokobe Forest Adventure

A True Malagasy Experience

Experience the true essence of Madagascar with our budget-friendly Lokobe Forest Adventure. Nestled amidst the captivating Lokobe Forest Reserve, our rustic beach bungalows offer a unique blend of jungle and sea vistas, with sweeping views across the serene sea channel to Nosy Komba.

Immerse yourself in the heart of nature with both nocturnal and daytime jungle walks right from our camp. Explore the nearby gems of Nosy Komba, Tanikely, and Petit Iranja, where you can indulge in fantastic snorkeling, embrace the local village life, and wander through vibrant markets.

Our camp is a regular haunt for playful lemurs, and our pristine beach is an ideal spot for swimming or embarking on a sea kayak adventure. Located just a 40-minute water taxi ride from the bustling Nosy Be port, the only way to access our camp is by sea.

Join us at Lokobe Forest Camp and embark on an unforgettable Malagasy adventure that won’t break the bank.
