TRAVEL TIPS

Travelling in Madagascar is like an adventure; flight schedules can sometimes change. And some places are remote, so keep cool; it’s part of the fun to deal calmly with the problems that pop up. Your escort guide makes every effort to ensure that everything runs safely and enjoyably. But those who truly want to enjoy Madagascar should be flexible.

CLIMATE


Madagascar is a land of the sun and gets sunshine almost all year round with high temperatures averaging 25° Celsius. It has two distinct seasons a hot, rainy season from November to April and a cold, dry season from May to October. So on December it will be very hot mostly in the western and southern part of the country (37 °Celsius or so). Because it is on rainy reason it will rain particularly in the eastern and central part but sometimes in the western and southern regions. But November and December is the ideal period for wildlife.
