Later you can enjoy an a la carte dinner, created from local ingredients, many grown in the hotel's grounds.

Client Rating for Madagascar 5/5 from 9 reviews
Lovely guest house run by a characterful French lady and her husband (she had spent 20+ years in Madagascar from age 2, and came back to run the B&B). Fantastic location, in the middle of nowhere. Has its own well, so water is potable. No WiFi, and cash only. Good food, with local ingredients. The only downer was that the facilities and treatment of our guides was less good - they said it was the least welcoming place for them (hence 'good' rather than 'excellent'). The owners need to watch this, as it's the guides that run the tours.
