Madagascar West


... is a large region of the island of Madagascar.

This remote and relatively little visited region has some awesome attractions, but which is desperately short of high quality accommodation.

The main attraction is the Tsingy de Bamaraka Reserve, renowned for a network of precarious pathways through spectacular limestone landscapes. The best accommodation in the nearby village of Bekopaka is probably Vazimba Hotel.

Further south lies Kirindy Forest Reserve, one of the largest and most rewarding wildlife areas in the country and the best place to spot the elusive fossas. The best accommodation in the area is probably Camp Amoureux.

Just south of the forest the road passes through the iconic Avenue des Baobabs.

These areas are generally accessed by 4x4 out of the coast town of Morondava, which is connected to the capital by air. The best accommodation here is at Chez Maggie and Palissandre Cote Ouest.

Most excitingly the area can be accessed by river expedition from the west, most commonly along the Tsiribihina, but preferrably along one of three lesser known rivers.
