Overview
More
Part of the last remaining absolute coastal forest in the south east of Madagascar, the reserve is managed as a non-profit social enterprise to protect flora & fauna in consultation with local people. Rich in wildlife, you can encounter lemurs, reptiles, and more. Our forest is primarily exotic and rare ebonies and other rare woods. Simple cabins like camping in a shelter, crisp white linen on a mattress on a traditional mat on the floor, inside a mosquito net. You can explore the 17km of beach and endless forest full of wildlife either with or without a guide.

Wanting to avoid the reputedly sleazy side of Mad's tourist scene and having an aversion to isolated luxury resorts I decided to avoid Nosy By. I serendipitously discovered St Luce reserve via Brett Massoud the Australian director of Dadamanga the company that owns and manages...More
