At West Valley Lodge, however, no kaht is cultivated.

West Valley Lodge was founded by Dolie Monunibo who herself grew up in the village of Antsalaka. Together with her husband Toto Mounibo from Diego Suarez and a dedicated team of gardeners, planters, kitchen and service staff, they welcome visitier to their their tropical farm and nature lodge in North Madagascar.
