Large trees in a public garden located a stone throw away. This set dropped , imagine again to be at just a walking distance from the administrative center of Madagascar’s capital … imagine a short walk from the hotel to the social headquarters of the largest banks in Antananarivo .… or with barely more effort visit the traditional market in Analakely or wander around Independance Street .

Sleep in Africa

Sleep in Africa aims to show the world the african beauty.
How? By sharing the best places to stay in Africa.

We have been frequently asked why we created this concept. Well, the answer is quite simple we want to contribute to this new trend of deconstruction of all the negativity associated with Africa. We simply want to burnish its image.

Sleep in Africa has for main goal to share the best places to sleep in Africa. We created this concept a few month ago on Facebook and Instagram.

We do have multiple objectives. First of all, we want to bring to light all kind of accommodations and not only be limited to hotel and resort, thus we share on our social medias: guesthouse, hostel, lodge, camp...  Secondly, we would like to help travelers to find the right accommodation for their vacations. And finally we want to create a desire, to awake curiosity for those who secretly dream to go to Africa, but are afraid or don't dare to go ahead.
