Tourism for conservation:

alternative and development lever for local communities

‘’It all started with the vision of making responsible investments for biodiversity conservation in Madagascar.’’ 

Since the foundation stone was laid in 2007 in Anjozorobe where our journey began, our establishments have always had the vocation of promoting sustainable tourism as an economic alternative and lever for the development of local communities.
Their involvement in conservation actions is essential for lasting results. The inclusion and participatory approach that we advocate aims to build capacity at the local level. Nearly 1,000 members make up our Tourism federation, the majority of whom are women dedicated to providing an original experience to each of our guests.

Located in the protected areas managed by Fanamby, our eco-lodges aim to find the best balance between the needs and aspirations of the communities, and the sustainable conservation of biodiversity.

  • Better visibility of the protected areas where the eco-lodges are located
  • Increased awareness about the protection of endangered species
  • An alternative source of income allowing the improvement of the living conditions of local communities through the creation of direct and indirect jobs
  • Reduced pressure on forests, as local communities jealously protect their treasure

Our lodges are Fair Trade Tourism certified
