With its jungle topography, white beaches and the world’s largest lemur population, Madagascar is indeed a magical destination. But as a popular tourist spot it can at times get a little busy. So if you want to get away from the crowds and spend some alone time with your loved one, you can now live like the lemurs do on your very own private island off Madagascar’s coast.

If you have always wanted to stay on a private island with no one around, then Manafiafy Beach and Rainforest Lodge, on the south-east coast of Madagascar, gives you the chance to do just that. You can spend the night camping on a small, private islet just a five minute boat ride from the Saint Luce peninsula on the main island.



Once you arrive, you can enjoy the tranquility and privacy of having the island all to yourself and spend the day exploring the natural beauty and unspoiled beaches.

As the sun sets you can enjoy a private lantern-lit dinner prepared by a French-trained chef. The a-la-carte dining has a great selection of seafood including mussels, oysters, crab, lobster and fresh fish.


When it is finally time for bed, you can live up high like the lemurs do in unique tree tents fastened like spider legs between palm trees under the starlit night sky.



Manafiafy Beach and Rainforest Lodge is located just two hours drive from Fort Dauphin. To book your own island getaway, visit Jenman Safaris.
