Average time to visit

Any time of year is fine for a visit except from January to March, when heavy rainfall in many areas can make some roads all but impassable, and when there’s a high risk of cyclones in the east and northeast. In general, the best time to travel in most areas is April and October/November. The coolest time to travel anywhere is during the dry season (May to October).

Average maximum temperatures vary from about 30°C in coastal areas (higher in summer) to around 25°C on the hauts plateaux. In Antananarivo and other highland areas, temperatures during winter can drop to 10°C and even lower during the night.

Annie Foot (Staff)

This is the best option from which to visit the Tsingy de Bemaraha National Park and has a pleasant location looking towards an escarpment which makes for impressive sunsets. The individual bungalows are comfortable, although they dont have air-conditioning which can make them a little warm during the heat of the day, but thankfully the lovely infinity pool provides the perfect opportunity to cool off. The food is varied and mixes Malagasy traditions with Western dishes to provide a menu which changes daily.
