Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

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)

Maison Gallieni offers a quirky stay in a small boutique hotel which doubles up at the Monaco High Commission. It definitely helps if you speak French, although dont let this put you off. The rooms are amongst the nicest I experienced in Antananarivo and it is a real haven to relax at whilst in the city.
