Le Kavitaha owes its name to the lake which its terrasse looks onto.
It has been, for years, the best in town & on week-ends, urban dwellers (from Tana) just flock in to get away from it all.
Its main asset is the shaded terrasse where al fresco lunches use to take place on a dozen of tables, all looking onto the lake.
Then, the possibility to lunch under shade in a tree-lined alley with, again, a view onto the Kavitaha lake. Pic#4, next to where I stood was a table bust being occupied by clients so didn't take any picture of the alley.
Favorite Dish: Favourite dish: fried fish. I liked my grilled fish but my cousin had his fried and wow!
It was served with a yogourt sauce (yogourt + dill + parsley ?) although I liked it without sauce. The baraoa flesh was tasty enough.
Grilled, fried, with sauce mafilotra (tomato-pepper-onion sauce)... the baraoa fish (pic#2) is just yummy. Skip carp, skip tilapia, you'll find them elsewhere. Baraoa is the thing here!
As a starter, I had shrimp doughs... too stodgy ! Plus, they were burnt, not fried. The exterior was brown whilst the dough paste was raw from the interior. As a result, the shrimp was ideally cooked, crunchy. That didn't put me off to savour the following main course, of course!
Btw, Le Kavitaha can accomodate you with those bungalows of theirs too. Haven't experienced it but there, may you look at their website below.

Address: Le Kavitaha, Ampefy
- On the main liaisons, like Tana-Analavory-Ampefy-Soavinandriana, the road is in good shape. So good it can kill. Not always but there are some cliffs & one must pay attention to not drive that fast... otherwise...
- In the contrary, to access all the sites of interest (Amparaky geysers; Itasy lake & islets; Liliha waterfalls), one has to drive on 4-5 km on once tarred roads that are now losing the tar surface. Bumpy rides if one is in a hurry.
- Esp. to access the geysers, avoid driving low cars (VW Golf, little Peugeots). We came across many of those having to turn back & skip the visit to the geysers. Good to notice that later on, I could spot those cars at the Liliha waterfalls, i.e they could ride the semi-tarred road to there, not the one to the geysers.
Just choose a pick-up, a 4wd, a station car... all of those would be fine.

Well, I had to say it somewhere. Don't you just find this particular one so bizarrely shaped ? lol
This foam, the slot itself, the lips...
But you'll have to be patient... Come over here, go to Itasy area, then hit Amparaky village. Check Things to do tips for directions pictures of other geysers on that site.
