Accommodation, Eastern Madagascar

Feon Ny Ala

Scroll

Feon ny Ala is a simple but comfortable hotel only 3km from the entrance to Perinet Reserve in Andasibe. It has a pleasant location next to a lake and opposite a fragment of rainforest which is why its not uncommon to wake to the sound of distant indri song at dawn. The hotel is in an ideal location for access to both Perinet and Mantadia National Parks but also particulary for night walks that are often taken along the nearby road during the evening. Although Feon ny Ala is one of the more basic options in Andasibe it still provides clean and comfortable accommodation in wooden A frame bungalows with thathed roofs. There are 40 rooms including large family bungalows and all feature  private bathrooms with hot water showers, mosquito nets and a desk and power outlets for re charging equipment.

The main building houses a large restaurant serving good but basic food plus a games room with pool table, table tennis, TV and a small libary. Outside there is a garden area with tables and umbrellas and a children’s play area with views towards the nearby forest.

Facilities

En suite bathrooms with hot water, restaurant, laundry service, games room and souvenir shop.

Local Wildlife

Indri, diademed sifaka, black and white ruffed lemur, Goodman's mouse lemur, eastern woolly lemur, Parson's chameleon, leaf chameleon, leaf tailed gecko, giraffe-necked weevil and many species of frog can be seen in the reserve.

Optional Activities

Wildlife walks in the rainforest.

Having recently returned from a truly memorable 3 weeks in Madagascar we wanted to express our sincerest thanks to you Helen, and all at Reef and Rainforest for arranging such a superb wildlife viewing experience.

As you are aware, we were particularly keen to see and photograph the fosa. At Kirindy forest we actually encountered 3. Despite the rather challenging accommodation we would highly recommend the Kirindy experience to all those wanting an exceptional primate viewing experience.
Overall our lemur species/subspecies count was 22 and other notable sightings included 2 species of mongoose, giant jumping rats, a huge Madagascar ground boa, humpback whales and the Madagascar fish eagle.

Every detail of the trip from start to finish was superbly well arranged and managed, which cannot be easy in a country with such complex problems. Well done Helen.

All aspects of the trip were outstanding. Wildlife, people, culture and geography. We will certainly return again to visit the north of the island and return to paradise, Anjajavy.

This was our second trip with Reef and Rainforest and I cannot speak highly enough of your company. I would recommend your services to any natural world/wildlife enthusiast. Thank you again.
