A great option to break the long (nine hour) journey between Isalo National Park and Ranomafana. Betsileo Country Lodge is located just five minutes from the Anja Community Reserve, with its high concentration of ring-tailed lemurs, the primary attraction here. The interesting town of Ambalavao, home to the country’s largest zebu market, is less than a ten minute drive away.

Betsileo is in a wonderfully picturesque setting with a lovely atmosphere, boosted by the friendly and welcoming staff. Standard rooms are in the main building, with detached bungalows available also. The bungalows have two bedrooms and a private veranda. All room options are simple but comfortable, and have en suite bathrooms. There is complimentary Wi-Fi and an outdoor swimming pool. Refreshing drinks and tasty home-cooked food are served in a bar and restaurant in the main building.

Tour guide was perfect (Excellent++). Attentive and caring. Outstanding person. Became part of the family. Give her an award!!! Local guides very enthusiastic and knowledgeable and pleasant people to be with. Helen’s enthusiastic and sparkling voice was a pleasure to hear on the ‘phone. All questions answered in detail and printed information sent was helpful. You guys really cared. Very attentive in Madagascar and went well. Very pleasant and good driver. No corners cut and a well planned trip with all details covered. Perfect for us. Due to good guides and spotters we saw 16 species of lemurs and plenty of them. Never in my wildest dreams did I expect to see so many species and so close to us. Marvellous – very emotional. Lemurs are such wonderful gentle creatures. This trip was so well-designed for people like us. I will never forget this trip in my life. What a humbling experience it was. Some time in the future we will be back to see these special animals. In the mean time I look to our video footage of our time with the lemurs of Madagascar. Helen Cox – well done. Your company is at the top of our list.
