Accommodation, Northern Madagascar

Tsara Komba Lodge


Located on the side of the hill in the sheltered south of Nosy Komba island, the owner-operated Tsara Komba Lodge is a boutique hotel offering spacious and stylish accommodation in eight private bungalows (six with one bedroom, two with two bedrooms) set within colourful gardens, each with en-suite bathroom, safety box and large terrace overlooking the private beach and sea. The main building contains a sitting room and restaurant with panoramic views of the bay serving a variety of well-cooked local and international dishes.

Tsara Komba Lodge is a peaceful and stylish getaway, ideal for swimming off the beach or just relaxing in your spacious and tasteful bungalow, watching out for dolphins and whales offshore. Boat trips can be arranged to the nearby big island of Nosy Be (only 20 minutes away by boat), Nosy Tanikely for snorkelling and other further islands such as Nosy Iranja and Nosy Tsarabanjina in the Radama or Mitsio archipelagos. If you’re feeling energetic, it is possible to hike on Nosy Komba with a chance to see wild black lemurs and other wildlife, or you might like to take an excursion to Lokobe Nature Reserve on Nosy Be, or hike at Russian Bay on the mainland. Scuba diving can be arranged easily with companies from Nosy Be.

Many inclusive activities available from snorkelling, pirogue/canoe trips, badminton, beach volleyball, beach racket ball, Frisbees, fishing, parlour games and library.

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.
