Le Camp Amoureux

Scroll

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.

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.
