Le Camp Amoureux

Comfortable accommodation within reasonable proximity to Kirindy

Le Camp Amoureux

Situated in Marofandilia village, an hour’s drive from the Avenue des Baobabs and 1.5 hours from Morondava, the camp is the most comfortable accommodation within reasonable proximity to Kirindy. The simple dome tents on covered, raised wooden platforms have outdoor en suite lavatory, basin and bucket shower. Unless one wants to stay within Kirindy itself to benefit from more potential wildlife experiences, this is the best option in the area. The camp has its own private reserve which, although rewarding, does not compare to Kirindy for wildlife, especially fossa.

Facilities

Bar and dining room in a two-storey building; private nature reserve

Local Wildlife

In the private reserve one can see some wildlife, but not nearly as much as in Kirindy Reserve (see Kirindy section)

Optional Activities

Daytime and nocturnal wildlife walks in the small private reserve and nearby Kirindy National Park.

Number of rooms

14

The road from Morondava to Maronfandilia is accessible only between April and December. The camp’s name comes from nearby intertwined baobabs which appear to be embracing each other. It’s best to arrive at the Avenue des Baobabs either at sunrise or sunset for great photo-opportunities.

It was an excellent trip. I saw a lot of a wonderful country and would like to return. The Malagasy people are lovely. Friendly and hospitable throughout. Everything was done to ensure we were happy and comfortable. Excellent service and wildlife. Wildlife highlights: mating fosas, close encounters with indri, diademed sifaka and ringtailed lemurs above us as we picniced below.
