Vakona Forest Lodge

Vakona Forest Lodge - At night


Located in a eucalyptus plantation on the doorstep of the Andasibe National Park, Vakona Forest Lodge is a nature lover’s paradise. The lodge offers comfortable accommodation in a peaceful and natural setting and is Andasibe’s only luxury hotel.

Vakona has its own private reserve where you can observe Madagascar’s endemic species, from the tiny Brookesia minima Chameleon (no larger than your fingernail) to crocodiles and exotic birds.

Lemur Island is a charming island accessible by canoe, where you can meet habituated lemurs saved from captivity. Feed them a banana, and the lemur may perch on your shoulder!

Vakona Forest Lodge is a comfortable eco-lodge comprising 28 Malagasy style bungalows scattered in a planted garden of palm trees and bougainvilleas.

It has 10 family bungalows, 8 double bungalows and 3 twin bungalows and 7 triple bungalows. Each bungalow has a terrace with a small external living room, en-suite private bathroom with warm water, heating, a personal safe and a mini-bar.

The reception, restaurant and bar are contained within an octagonal building on a small lake, and you can relax over dinner whilst observing the local birds or around the fireplace.
