Madagascar Madagascar Bespoke


Barefoot Paradise in the Indian Ocean

Most conversations about Madagascar will centre around talk of the famous lemur—the country’s signature animal—but truth be told those perplexing eyes are only a portend of what’s to come; in fact, there are many more weird and wonderful animals to discover. With a smattering of gorgeous peripheral islands bleeding out from the main one, Madagascar is a true island country with an unprecedented wealth of biodiversity. Skip from island to island exploring the riches of the flora and fauna while falling deeply in love with the wild variety of landscapes: within the span of 300 km you can move from lush rainforest to desert! Equally impressive are the never-far views of the ocean—at once wild, idyllic and hauntingly azure.

Tsara Komba Luxury Beach & Forest Lodge

Sitting on one of the finest islands in the Nosy Be archipelago, the lodge is tucked between the golden sandy beach and the leafy privacy of the hillside, redolent of citronella. With just eight thatched bungalows, the setting is decidedly intimate. As the island’s top employer, the lodge is thoroughly imbued with community and an active mission to promote ecological sustainability. View hotel website »

Miavana, Nosy Anko

Set on the private island of Nosy Ankao, Miavana is dreamily chic: From any one of the 14 exclusive villas—as well as the main lodge—you can drink in panoramic views of the expansive Indian Ocean while enjoying every modern comfort. Interiors are informed by a neutral colour palette with a few bright hues to compete with the vivid natural scenery. View hotel website »

Manafiafy Beach & Rainforest Lodge

At the romantic intersection of lush jungle and cove, Manafiafy Lodge is well-positioned to provide serenity, as well as activity. Unpack in one of six modern-rustic bungalows staked near the water with decks practically hovering above the sea. At night the open-faced restaurant is delightfully cozy with a large fireplace and numerous lanterns adorning the deck. View hotel website »

Anjajavy le Lodge, Anjajavy Village

Buttressed by natural, untouched wilderness, Anjajavy le Lodge is a true piece of paradise. Here, rare and endemic species are counted as its residents. With a desire to integrate all structures into the landscape, architects created villas that pay tribute to local village life while observing contemporary flourishes. All villas are strewn throughout the sprawling garden landscape. View hotel website »


Our Trip Designers are a special breed. Part guru, part collaborator, part mind-reader, they have the full breadth of B&R resources at their fingertips. Our talented team is the best in the world at what they do—and what they do is turn fantasies into reality. (We thought about changing their title to “Dream Weavers,” but we didn’t want to re-print all those business cards.)


“Visiting Africa the B&R way is the ONLY way to experience this beautiful, magnificent continent! Each day was filled with such memorable moments. Our guides were amazing!”
