We have 45 years of experience in Madagascar and are happy to help you visiting this wonderful island!

We welcome you in our zazamalala Forest in western Madagascar. Staying at Zazamalala means experiencing rural Madagascar, the forest, the majestic Baobab trees, the hidden ponds with unique animals, birds and plants, visiting the beech, the markets, and after sunset dining with Malagasy delicacies, dancing around the camp fire on traditional Sakalava music. You will stay in a villa in the middle of a botanical garden full of palms and fragrant flowers. You can take a refreshing dive in the swimminhpool while watched by parrots and Gentle Lemurs. Zazamalala Forest is a step-stone for several unique reserves and national parks, e.g. the Unesco Heritage Tsingy de Bemaraha.
