Accommodation in Madagascar
Lodges & hotels in Madagascar
Matoke Tours stands out for over 10 years in its accommodation concept: We visit all accommodation on Madagascar ourselves to be able to select the best accommodation for you and to give you advice from personal experience!
Our selection criteria are focused on the view, service, location, style and price of each lodge. We also select accommodation based on the feedback from previous clients.
Have a look below at Matoke Tours' selection of lodges and hotels in each area of Madagascar. We give options in different standards and budgets.
How We Rate Accomodation
“Budget” - Accommodation such as simple guesthouses or dormitory rooms are available in many cities in DR Congo. Service and amenity standards won't be high and you are likely to share facilities with other guests, but choosing this standard can make a big difference in the price of the tour.
“Mid-range” - Matoke Tours originally focused mainly on the mid-range market and therefore has a special ability to choose the best accommodation of this standard. This is your best option for comfortable, self-contained ('en suite') accommodation set in stunning locations that don't cost a fortune.
“Semi-luxe” - Accommodation falling in this category is more comfortable than the mid-range. The locations are similar, but the details are further refined. These lodges often have a swimming pool, as well.
“Luxury” - The luxurious accommodation is fully equipped, comfortable and usually more spacious than the mid-range options. They often have facilities like swimming pools, masseurs and sometimes even private butlers.
