Libanona Woods Camp & Surf: embrace the pristine, natural beauty of southeast Madagascar!
Located only a mile outside the bustling town of Fort-Dauphin (Taolagnaro), this rustic campground prides itself on safety and cleanliness, with proximity to some of Madagascar's prettiest beaches and small, but fairly consistent and empty, surf.
If you want to camp with an option for fairly consistent but small surf, Libanona Woods Camp & Surf is the only both safe and clean place to pitch a tent in the greater southeast of Madagascar.
The campground is set in a modern day Garden of Eden on the plateau of a peninsula. There are no poisonous snakes and few annoying insects, but there are the sounds of unique endemic birds and near constant tropical breezes.
The bustling town of Fort- Dauphin with its very affordable market, restaurants, taxis, and all of its other amenities is about a mile away.
The facilities include roomy 6-person tents, if you are unable to bring your own. Each campsite comes with a picnic table, chairs, and a charcoal grill. A special group site is able to accommodate groups of up to 25 campers.
A Tiki bar is on the grounds offering drinks, snacks, and a camp store. Some meals may be cooked to order, upon request in advance. An enclosed bungalow acts as a small clubhouse with WiFi access. Outdoor gardens are graced with vernacular furniture, that includes a fire pit for campfires. Rustic cold water showers and private toilets are new in 2015.
A first aid station on the grounds is manned by an American-trained emergency medical technician and veteran family practice nurse practitioner. A telemedicine link is on site, providing 24/7 access to US board certified emergency and other medical specialties.
A horseshoes pit is free, while umbrellas, boogie boards, bicycles and surfboards (long and short) are for rent.
The campground boasts it's own private beach with a reef. One of the prettiest public swimming beaches in Madagascar is a 5 minute walk from the grounds, while one of its best surf spots (Monseignors) is 5 minutes in a different direction.

We live very close to the campground and actively manage it, so meeting you is a certainty.
However, a courteous individual staff member is also assigned to each site. That staff member will be your personal messenger to us, and servant, on an as needed basis.
Specific additional information is available upon request.
The important thing to remember about Madagascar is to remain flexible and calm. Make allowances for your important time!Things move slowly and often without regard to the clock. Your stay will be much more pleasant if you "go with the flow."

I am pleased to serve you camping enthusiasts in southeast Madagascar!
I'm a descendant of my tribe's queen. As such, I am well-connected around the Anosy region of the southeast, and consider myself to be an excellent representative and resource person for visitors. I also have close ties with Fort-Dauphin's Tourism Board.
My passions include camping, cooking, dancing, landscaping, making floral arrangements and decorating. I love the beach and still intend to learn how to surf one of these days with my husband, but for now, teaching Zumba takes up much of my time and energy. So does running Libanona Woods and a small coffee shop for the community medical center.
Having spent 21 years of married life in America, my qualifications are certification in food preparation, handling, and hygiene. I've also worked as a florist and a certified Zumba instructor (see my page).
I try to practice my Christian faith daily with my husband, by serving God and my neighbors. Life was good in the US, but it's even better here in Fort-Dauphin (Taolagnaro), celebrating God's beautiful gift of grace!
