This family resort overlooks the sparkling waters of the lake, offering a range of water-based activities including kayaking and fishing. Hiking is also available in the lakeshore forests which are home to a range of birdlife and indigenous wildlife.
Mantasoa Lodge pays particular focus to the upliftment of local women and protection of the environment around the lake. The lodge has also established a hard-working community association which offers mutual aid and development, empowerment and employment to women in the area.
