    Madagascar Currency exchange

    Hi, You can take most major currencies in cash, recommended being euro, British pounds, or American dollars. You cannot change Australian dollars. I recommend that you take a bit of cash for emergency, but use an ATM card to actually get at your money. Best to take a VISA or MasterCard debit card, and get cash advances from ATMs, which are available in most cities of Madagascar. All banks accept VISA, only the BNI bank accepts MasterCard. Note that you cannot pay for goods or services in shops or hotels with your card, you can only get cash from an ATM. Please note that your card must be visa or mastercard, other cards do not work at all in Madagascar. about 4 years ago

    Best place in Madagascar to see lemurs in the wild?

    The closest to Antananarivo is Andasibe. Most National Parks have very experienced guides who can take you to see lemurs in the wild. You can also see at Sainte Luce Private Reserve near Fort Dauphin. over 4 years ago

    Help! Madagascar. I am looking for the contact details of a woman who does private tours of Madagascar.

    Roslyn are you looking for a specific woman, or just any woman. There are many different types of tours of Madagascar and many of them are done by women. over 5 years ago

    When is the best time to visit Madagascar?

    Personally I always prefer autumn and spring, to visit just about anywhere in the world... Madagascar is lovely in April May, or October November. Weather patterns these days are a total mess and pretty unpredictable, but there are higher chances of rain the longer you leave it into the summer. Although it can rain all year round, from December to April is cyclone season so you have the risk of rains. February March you are pretty much guaranteed rain. over 5 years ago

    What kind of vaccination is needed in Madagascar?

    You will not be asked about your vaccinations when entering Madagascar except for yellow fever if you have arrived from a country where it is endemic. You should consider: Hepatitis A: Recommended for all travelers Typhoid: Recommended for all travelers (but ask your doctor about effectiveness, I've heard conflicting reports about whether it works any more or not) Yellow fever: Required for all travelers arriving from a yellow-fever-infected area in Africa or the Americas Influenza: Recommended for all travelers Hepatitis B: Recommended for all travelers Rabies: For travelers spending a lot of time outdoors, or at high risk for animal bites, or involved in any activities that might bring them into direct contact with bats Measles, mumps, rubella (MMR): Two doses recommended for all travelers born after 1956, if not previously given Tetanus-diphtheria: Revaccination recommended every 10 years (especially tetanus) about 6 years ago

    Anyone been to Madagascar?! Would love to hear anything about this amazing place.. I want to go but have no idea where to start! :)

    Hi Holly I am an Australian who has lived in Madagascar for around 15 years. I am presently in Australia and would be happy to chat with you on skype or something, or you could ring me if you like. If you add dadamanga to your skype I will give you my mobile number in a message, or we could just chat there. Sorry to be so brief today but I am running off to do something, but anyway there is just so much to tell you and it would be much better done in a chat... Get in touch.

    My new partner girlfriend wants me to go to madagascar with her

    I lived there for the last 15 years, it's a lovely place. If she has investments there, I can only assume that she speaks French or Malagasy, which does help, although English is now spoken a little bit, just about everywhere. You will have a lovely time. I don't know where you are but you can fly into Madagascar from Paris (stopover?), Nairobi (stopover?), Jo'burg (stopover?), Mauritius (stopover?) or Reunion (stopover?). You have plenty of options. Madagascar has plenty of tourists every year and although like anywhere there are risks (google how many tourists are killed when visiting New York City - it's a LOT) Madagascar is a generally safe and peaceful place. Read a guidebook at search the archives at a busier travel forum such as Lonely Planet. over 6 years ago
