|| PROJECT ALAOTRA - NATURE TOURISM
With this module MWC brings sustainable nature tourism to the
region of Alaotra, namely to the village of Andreba. This serves
as a source of further income to the villagers and at the same
time encourages them to protect their unique environment.
A new tourist destination
For this MWC has built Camp Bandro, a tourist facility outside
the village and close to the boarder of Lake Alaotra. Camp Bandro
consists of a typical Sihanaka house for accommodation, a separate
kitchen, showers, a toilet as well as a house for the guardian.
The inauguration of Camp Bandro took place at the beginning of
MWC has furthermore trained guides, so that tourists visiting
the village have the possibility to take a guided boat tour in
a pirogue. On the lake and in the restricted area of the papyrus
marshes, the Bandro Parc, they can observe the rich variety of
birds of Alaotra and, with a little luck, even the bandro.
Benefit for the community
The module nature tourism is a community based project. Therefore
income from this tourism will partly be used for the village to
finance micro projects such as the construction of public toilets
or wells for the supply of clean drinking water.
