12 cabins in a pine forest which is sited on the edge of the natural forest reserve. Good system of trails there, and a great place to see and hear Indri, also good for Diademed Sifaka and some high-quality endemic birds like 2 of the ground-rollers. It's a 400 m walk from the parking area along a track beside the...

This forest camp is perfect if you have started your trip to madagascar in antananarivo and are looking for something calm and natural. The bungalows are very comfortable and the restaurant is excellent, especially the malagasy dishes. The owner is super helpful. If you travel there individually, you have to take a taxi brousse from tana and then a taxi...

Such an impressive place built on a hill up from rice paddies and right where the pine forest meets primary forest. The camp is a high end camp with tents on a platform and with a shower (with hot water!) and toilet adjoined. The view from the restaurant is stunning, and the food is excellent. Everyone working at the camp...

This was a great experience, and, given Madagascar's twin challenges of poverty and preservation, one I felt good about. Saha Forest Camp is perched on a hillside where the rice paddies meet the rain forest. It's operated by an NGO on land that belongs to the surrounding rural community, and thus provides income and employment to the local community while...

We stayed at Saha Forest Camp for 3 nights at the beginning of June. We really loved the scenery and the peace and quiet. The bungalows have a beautiful view of the rainforest, and we were even lucky to hear the indri call twice. They are confortable but can be a little bit chilly due to the high humidity of...

I cannot say enough positive things about Saha. I spent a weekend there and loved every second. From the walk in from the car park to the fresh and delicious food to the hikes – it was such a unique experience and provided the opportunity to encounter some of the amazing flora and fauna that Madagascar has to offer.

Saha Forest Camp is a lovely refuge 3 hours from Tana, Madagascar's capital. The tented bungalows are tasteful and comfortable, the staff is professional and friendly, the management is ever present and very pleasant. The food is the best I have had in Madagascar, by far! I would go back just for a meal! It is off the beaten path,...

We had a two night stay in this lovely property, and could not have been more charmed by the experience. The setting is beautiful, the accommodation is comfortable and spacious, and the food was excellent. The hostesses could not have been more accommodating, especially when we needed to make some last minute departure changes. The highlight, however, was the forest...

The 500m walk leading to the camp set the tone for our stay. The forest on one side and the rice fields on the other highlighted the serene blend of environmental beauty and exquisite food awaiting us. Our hostess warmly welcomed us, explaining the different hikes available. We opted for a 2 hour day hike and 1 hour night hike....

We thoroughly enjoyed the calm simplicity of our three day stay in early May to Saha Camp. It nestles picturesquely on the edge of the Central Highlands rain forest and with good local guides we saw several types of lemur, chameleon, paradise flycatcher etc. etc. Do try a night walk. The service in our case was excellent and the "gourmet"...
