Client Rating for Madagascar 5/5 from 9 reviews

We loved Kirindy Lodge. It was exactly what it said on the can. The bathrooms were poor and without running hot water but there was a bottomless supply of hot water on request and a huge bucket of almost boiling hot water was brought to your bathroom. The room was clean and comfortable. You were in the middle of nature and could walk into the forest following fosa (at a respectable distance), looking for birds, finding lemurs, etc. The food was good home cooking in large quantities and considering it was all cooked on fires outside was amazing. There was a large choice of dishes. The staff were lovely, friendly and spoke some English
