Mandrare River Camp
Madagascar Classic Camping’s Mandrare River Camp is set in the cool shade of a grove of tamarind trees, three and a half hours west of Fort Dauphin. To get there you drive through the impressive sand dunes of Lac Anony and the spiny desert to the classic tented camp on the banks of the mighty Mandrare River.
