Information for your trip to Madagascar
To travel to Madagascar you can apply for a visa online before your trip, but you can also do it when you arrive at the airport and it can be for 30, 60, or 90 days. The passport must be valid for at least six months and you can pay in dollars or euros. They will require the yellow fever vaccination certificate if you come from a country at risk of that disease.
Is Madagascar safe?
Madagascar is a very quiet country and generally safe to travel. People are very hospitable and make the journey easier. However, it is advisable to be careful with personal items, because there are pickpockets and also pay attention when getting into taxis because minor robberies can occur.
What can we do while on tour in Madagascar?
Madagascar’s natural beauty makes it an ideal destination for adventure seekers. You can immerse yourself in crystal clear waters, hike in forests and appreciate wonderful landscapes with plants and animals that can only be seen there since they only exist on the island.
Madagascar is the fourth largest island in the world and they call it the “red island”. One of the first things you will hear when you arrive will be “mora mora”, which means slow, slow, like their rhythm of life. The language spoken is Malagasy, but since they are a French colony, they also speak French and some English. People are very friendly and they like you to try their gastronomy, which abounds in rice and seafood. The official currency is the Ariary.
Avenue of Baobabs
Strolling along the Avenue of the Baobabs in Madagascar at sunset time is a unique experience. Just over 30 baobabs over 20 meters high appear on the road that connects the towns of Morondava and Belo-sur-Tsiribihina. The baobabs that grew there more than 800 years ago are the largest species of baobabs in the world and you won’t see them anywhere else.
Lemurs and other animals
Lemurs are the symbol of Madagascar and even have a sanctuary. This funny animal moves freely throughout the island, where you can also see chameleons, the fossa (a predatory feline), humpback whales, and very rare insects. The fauna of the country is diverse and unique. Many of the animals that live there will not be seen elsewhere.
Nosy Be is the largest island in Madagascar and is called “the big island” or “the scented island” for its abundant cocoa, coffee and vanilla plantations. It is one of the most touristic places in the country with beautiful beaches and some practically deserted. Here you can snorkel, dive, or just enjoy the scenery and the tranquility.
Capital of Madagascar
Antananarivo, the heart of Madagascar, is a city where the past and present converge in an enchanting mosaic. Home to over 2 million souls, it’s a place where traditional Malagasy architecture coexists with contemporary designs. As the most populous city in Madagascar, it’s a linguistic tapestry where Malagasy and French are predominantly spoken. The city’s highlights include the regal Rova of Antananarivo, the vibrant Analakely Market, and the serene tranquility of Tsimbazaza Zoo and Botanical Garden, each offering a unique glimpse into the soul of Madagascar.
