Namoroka Tsingy Camp

Scroll

This is a brand new safari-style tented camp which opens in August 2024 and is the exclusive accommodation option in this area. This part of northwestern Madagascar showcases razor-sharp limestone formation known as tsingy. The seldom visited but stunningly beautiful 220 km² Tsingy de Namoroka National Park, complete with its narrow canyons, vertical limestone spires and biodiverse forests is located here.

There are six ecosystems including tsingy, cave systems, dry forest, bamboo forest, riverine forest, wetlands. Marosakabe cave system could be Africa’s largest cave system, with around 113km of explored caves so far. Peculiar blind fish, cave geckos and bats reside in these subterranean depths.

There are three and four night all-inclusive activity packages available. Guests reach the camp from either a private charter flight to Soalala Airstrip, or by boat from Mahajanga to Soalala. From Soalala it is a 2 hrs 30 minute drive. Namoroka Tsingy Camp has partnered with NGO Wildlife Madagascar to support scientific research and conservation in the area

“It was a fab trip. Everything went very well in Madagascar. All the local guides were really good but special praise goes to [our guide] at Andasibe – so knowledgeable and interesting. He, like all the guides, showed a real love for the wildlife and environment. Excellent wildlife: highlights – fosas in daylight within 10 mins of the first rainforest walk, diademed sifakas, golden bamboo and ringtailed lemurs and giraffe necked weevil.
