After a several promotional travels in South Africa, we have been convinced that the presence of Giraffes and Elephants is not essential to do the safari accommodation in Madagascar ! In 2000, we imported a hundred meters of canvas and made our own tents to build the Tsaranoro Hotel : Tsara Camp.


TSARA CAMP has varied and spectacular surroundings, illuminated by red and ocre lights, such as in a Western movie ! To enhance this feeling, Tsara camp – Tsaranoro Hotel is settled in a half-circle, looking as Far West wagons around the camp fire ! The Tsaranoro valley is just a paradise for nature, mountain, and photography lovers ! Climbing, trekking and paragliding are all possible to spice to your journey among us.


Today we have 15 tents settled in a half-circle, all equipped with :

  • Double or Twin beds with mosquito nets
  • Private bathrooms (Open sky shower!)
  • Closet
  • Office corner
  • Terrace with the view on Andringitra National Park
  • 24/7 water supply, heated by solar energy
  • Electricity is provided twice a day by a soundless generator from 6 to 8 am and from 5 to 10 pm


The Tsara Camp is in the middle of the Tsaranoro Valley. The valley is surrounded by 3 mountains: the Tsaranoro mount (1 910m above sea level, 800m from the bottom of the valley), the Chameleon mount (1 540m above sea level, 600m from the bottom of the valley) and at last by the mountain range marking the beginning of Andringitra National Park.


Located at the bottom of the camp, the restaurant of Tsara Camp – Tsaranoro Hotel has been build in 2017. Breakfast is served as a buffet. It is generous to keep you fit for all day long, especially if you are trekking. Picnics can be prepared. The cook is tasteful with a mix of European and malagasy influences.
The lounge in the middle of the camp is the ideal place to share a sunset drink or to read a book. It is decorated with the famous wooden totems called “Alohalo”. At last, the bar inside the restaurant is a convivial place reproducing a traditionnal Malagasy Epi-bar (Grocery store + Bar). It is the place to be in every Malagasy village, where people buy their food they need for the day, and sometimes share a drink!
