Traveling to the Magical World

When to go

The time of year that you should travel depends on the purpose of your trip. If you picked Madagascar because of its picture perfect beauty and wild life, you should consider April or May. Everything in the wilderness tends to be especially full of life due to the rain. But if you want to enjoy the different bird species, you might want to consider traveling between September and December. Because it is mating season, the birds tend to stand out and make more noise. Another fun fact about Madagascar is that it's rich culture was recorded by Marco Polo.

What to Do

One of the most entertaining festivals is called the Tsagaintsants, which is celebrated by both tourists from all over the world and native people. You should also visit the Queen's Palace, Manjakamiadan. Today it serves as the prime minister's home and is full of design and details. If you are one of the many visitors who is visiting Madagascar to witness the diverse wild life and habitats, you should go to Montagne d'Arbre. This is Madagascar's National Park and features some of the rarest Orchids in the entire world.

When not to go

You might want to avoid January through March because you will find that there is a ton of rainfall. This can make transportation a little tricky. However, this could be a good time to go if you want to save yourself some money. If this is your goal, you will probably want to avoid the Christmas and New Year time period.

What to avoid

You want to avoid disrespecting any of the wild life or plants that are on the island. In fact, there are numerous endangered plants that can be found in Madagascar.

Culture Shock

One of the things that make Madagascar culturally unique is the fact that people are buried at their homes in tombstones versus at a cemetery. Their families have beautiful and elaborate tombstones to celebrate their loved one's life. They are somewhat similar to the Egyptian pyramids and are breathtaking to look at.
