Discover Nature Lodge

Situated in the north of Madagascar in the charming French colonial village of Joffreville, Nature Lodge is a small and exclusive eco-lodge and an ideal base to explore Amber Mountain National Park. Set high on the hills, Nature Lodge is surrounded by a lush forest of mangoes and litchi trees, providing peace and tranquillity.

There are 12 thatched wooden chalets which have been built using local woods and materials. Each ensuite chalet is individually decorated using warm Malagasy colours and features your own private deck, the perfect spot to enjoy the evening sunset and the stunning panoramic views over the bay of Diego and the surrounding mountains. The main restaurant serves traditional Malagasy and French meals with produce sourced from either the vegetable garden, local market or fresh from the sea. Beside the restaurant is a comfortable bar where you will be able to enjoy exotic cocktails and local rums either indoors or outdoors on the terrace.
