The best accommodation servicing Ankarana Special Reserve

Tastefully designed bungalows with superb views of Ankarana

About five and a half hours by car from Diego Suarez, or three hours from Ankify at the coast, stylish Iharana Bush Camp has 16 bungalows with unique decor to reflect Malagasy and mainland African styles. The property is a 90-minute drive from the Special Reserve office and about a 15-minute walk to the nearest of the Tsingy limestone pinnacle formations.

From the room terraces, sunsets are gorgeous and views of Ankarana’s limestone fortress are alluring and otherworldly. The restaurant and kitchen have a true bush camp like atmosphere. Do note that sometimes, small wildlife does enter the rooms; we have occasional reports of tree frogs enjoying the bathrooms, mostly much to the delight of guests – and the envy of those who see the pictures back home! Five of the bungalows have lake and Tsingy views, with a private terrace. One has a partial view of the lake and Tsingy, with a terrace. Eight of the bungalows are in the gardens and have neither a terrace nor lake views. There are no fans or air-conditioning.

There is a small, very welcome swimming pool. A variety of activities are on offer both inside and around the reserve including canoe rambling, sunset walks, nocturnal excursions and cycling.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… so we connect with local communities, and strive for sustainable travel to make your holiday special
