    Air Mad domestic flights

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Madagascar. Air Mad liaises Antananarivo (Tana) with main Malagasy cities. See weekly time-schedule for that.

    A tip in the tip: it seems that it is cheaper to book your internal flights while booking your international flight to Madagascar. Ask TOs and travel agencies about that.

    Road trip by 4*4, taxi-brousse

    They are my favourite transportation means to go to a city to another since they allow you to see landscapes. Besides, travelling by taxi-brousse with other passengers is a good way to know about Malagasy people since this transortation means is used by Malagasy of all kinds.

    Book seats within taxi-brousse companies or associations in Tana. Be careful to book in advance since this is a really sought-after means (cheaper, adventure). It's quite strange but they are professional (on time, in contrary of other services). Taxi-brousses are often cars like a sedan with 8-9 seats or vans.
    OR, rent a sedan car with a chauffeur-guide who will show you around cities. This was our choice to travel from Center to South of Madagascar.

    In Tana, book your seats at taxi-brousses station in Anosibe. This station is dealing with roadtrips to Southern parts (Antsirabe, Fianarantsoa, Toliara, Taolagnaro, Morondava..). I think departures would be there as well.
    Antananarivo-Toliara city: 970 km.
    Antananarivo-Taolagnaro city: 1600 km.

    Yet, a roadtrip of 2 days from Toliary (Tulear) to Taolagnaro (Fort-dauphin) is not to be done by truck-brousse. Click here to read my insight of taxi-brousses and train rides. For sure, you will have to plan internal trips when visting this big country.
