Iharana Bush Camp

A wonderful rustic Bush Camp with stunning views of the Tsingy.

Iharana Bush Camp

The Iharana Bush camp has simple but lovely cabanas inspired by the traditional Malagasy lodge with ochre walls, satrana-roofed with dividing walls made with plants, woods, roots, creeper and laterite.
The cabanas are small individual lodges under the shade of mango trees. Four of them are by the lake and have a luxury private balcony at the foot of the Tsingy. Each cabana is equipped with private bathroom with hot /cold water and all usual items needed.
The cabanas use ecological energy. You can have hot water and light through solar panels. Be informed that there are no plugs in the cabanas. You can recharge your appliances in an office especially intended for that purpose.

Their restaurant combines western specialties and a slight oriental touch. They even make their own homemade jam for breakfast.
The restaurant continues out to a wide balcony, a perfect spot for relaxing and enjoying the sunset.

It was lovely to meet Helen face-to-face and to devise the ideal trip with her – her enthusiasm for Madagascar certainly confirmed us in our choice of destination. Enthusiastic and knowledgeable guides, seemed genuinely interested in their work and in interacting with tourists. Invaluable in spotting wildlife and discussing uses of local medicinal plants. [Our escort guide] was a delightful companion on our journey in Madagascar and very solicitous of our welfare. We were thrilled by the wildlife. Without the keen insight and knowledge of our guides we would certainly have failed to spot the giraffe-necked weevil and stick insects. The night walks were very productive – several mouse lemurs. The first sight of indris was an especial thrill as was the sight of a sleeping mouse lemur in broad daylight. Perhaps the most rewarding experience occurred when the lemurs came to us – six ring-tailed lemurs in Isalo, sifakas on the balcony in Anjajavy, flocks of grey-headed lovebirds on the lawn at breakfast. An excellent tour which gave us a good insight into the wildlife and potential conservation issues in Madagascar. We had opportunities to visit local communities. We were most impressed by the efficiency in ensuring a trouble-free and very enjoyable time in Madagascar. Our tour leader and driver were delightful and very hard working. We shall certainly look forward to booking a further tour with you.
