Manga Soa Lodge


The French owned and managed Manga Soa Lodge is located on the eastern coast of Nosy Be island on the scenic beach at Befefika. The lodge is just 10 minutes’ drive from the airport and offers a luxury experience ideal for some down time after an exciting wildlife journey.

The lodge has 5 bungalows as well as 2 private villas, all individually designed and decorated. The standard rooms are on the side of the hill in the garden and equipped with comfortable double beds, mini bar, TV and sliding doors that open onto stunning views to the Mitsio islands.

All of the rooms have ceiling fans, mosquito nets and 24-hour electricity (subject to mains blackouts). There is access to the small beach and boats can be hired to take you snorkelling etc. There is also a small infinity pool and massage room, and an excellent restaurant serving delicious gourmet food, although the menu can be quite repetitive.

Tour guide was perfect (Excellent++). Attentive and caring. Outstanding person. Became part of the family. Give her an award!!! Local guides very enthusiastic and knowledgeable and pleasant people to be with. Helen’s enthusiastic and sparkling voice was a pleasure to hear on the ‘phone. All questions answered in detail and printed information sent was helpful. You guys really cared. Very attentive in Madagascar and went well. Very pleasant and good driver. No corners cut and a well planned trip with all details covered. Perfect for us. Due to good guides and spotters we saw 16 species of lemurs and plenty of them. Never in my wildest dreams did I expect to see so many species and so close to us. Marvellous – very emotional. Lemurs are such wonderful gentle creatures. This trip was so well-designed for people like us. I will never forget this trip in my life. What a humbling experience it was. Some time in the future we will be back to see these special animals. In the mean time I look to our video footage of our time with the lemurs of Madagascar. Helen Cox – well done. Your company is at the top of our list.
