Madagascar - Travel and Tourism
The Mozambique Channel isn’t the only geological feature that separates Madagascar from Africa.
Madagascar has some of the world’s most pristine coral reefs, and you won’t have to deal with the seaweed of eastern Africa.
The best time to visit Madagascar is in late spring (April through May) and early autumn (September through October).
You must have a passport (valid for at least six months) and a visa to enter Madagascar.
There is no better way to experience the diversity and richness of Africa’s people, cultures, and landscapes than through video.
The U.S. Department of State has described Madagascar as “by and large, safer than many other African countries and even certain U.S. cities.”
Malagasy is the official language of Madagascar, as well as the term for the people who call the country their home.
The palace of the Queen in Antananarivo (Musée du Palais d'Andafiavaratra) contains important art.
