Drop off your phones, tablets, and laptops! You arrive at Bush House! The paradise of mora-mora(“slowly slowly” in Malagasy)! Located in the eastern part of Madagascar, the 15 bungalows are spread over a tropical hill with excellent overviews. It takes 6-7 hours to come from Antananarivo, but it will be a rewarding experience and worth the effort. You can spot wild lemurs, discover hidden natural wonders, go hiking, or enjoy the peace and quietness, away from mass tourism!
