Conveniently located between the two parts of Andasibe-Mantadia National Park, Vakona Forest Lodge is a good option for exploring the area.

Set in a natural amphitheatre that echoes with birdsong, its 28 cottages are built on a hillside, connected by a series of steps and paths, overlooking a small lake and a swimming pool. The octagonal main building containing the restaurant, bar, lounge and reception area is constructed over the lake, 

A short walk from the lodge is a small island, which has a private reserve with several species of habituated lemurs, so there are good opportunities for close-up wildlife photos.
