Litchi Tree


Litchi Tree is a family-run guesthouse located in a commanding position in Joffreville, with views over forest to the Mozambique Channel and Diego Suarez Bay, and close to the entrance of Montagne d’Ambre National Park.

The six spacious rooms are set in the gardens to the rear of the main building and all have private bathrooms and comfortable beds. The main building, which is the restored residence of Marshall Joffre and the French Admiralty, houses a dining room with excellent food served, a small bar, lounge and local crafts shop. The charming hosts will ensure a relaxing and memorable stay.

Montagne d’Ambre National Park is an isolated mount of rainforest in an otherwise semi-arid landscape. The park contains many lemurs including, crowned, Sanford’s brown and the Montagne d’Ambre fork-marked lemur as well as birds such as the Madagascar crested ibis and several kingfishers. There are 11 species of chameleon present including the Brookesia minima and the beautiful panther chameleon and a good trail network some of which lead to sacred waterfalls.
