Why you need a guide to travel around Madagascar?

While having a national guide in Madagascar is not required, it is highly recommended because:

  • English is rarely spoken in the country, and fluent French is not often spoken in rural areas. Our national guides can assist you in communicating with locals, as well as with local guides, who are often required to visit national tourist attractions
  • Guides can help visitors navigate parts of the country where GPS does not function
  • Various tourist sites require driver guides for access due to road conditions
  • Guides can manage hotel accommodations and dining options based on your wishes and budget
  • Guides can assist visitors in an emergency, or can help them navigate the limited health infrastructure in the country as needed.

Our value as tour operators in Madagascar

  • You’ll increase your curiosity and humility cause we’ll try to make you knowing another face of Madagascar and Malagasy people way of life
  • Roads in Madagascar are complicated. 120km can be 2 or 4 hours so we’ll try to enjoy each trip and each moment outdoor. The planning we’ll be always adapted to your need; seeing these people packed like sardines in 15 seats bus and they are 30 people inside and changing departure time will make you sad and you’ll understand how lucky and safe you are to be in group of person that you like to be with, that will improve your next trip
  • You’ll meet Malagasy people and culture
  • You’ll feel at that time that being human is really important for improvement, Madagascar we’ll make you creative, it’ll make you imaginative and inspired cause you’ll learn different culture and everything need to be start in Madagascar, you’ll have opportunities to feel it
  • Different point of view will come to your mind cause everything is totally different here, at least animals is endemic, there is a lot of diversity, North, South, East and West part of Madagascar is totally different you’ll feel like in a different country in each part, you’ll be more happier and will do some hike, after these hike you’ll anticipate things more than it was, it’ll make you more patient cause Madagascar is “mora mora” country it means everything is 20miles per hour instead of 200miles per hour in your country.
  • If you take the South tour you’ll have opportunities to plant trees and to see us sharing copybooks and pens in one association cause 50% of the benefit of Madacartour we’ll be re invest to the community helping kids going to school, having fun and bringing good vibes is essential in our life so we’ll try to ask you having more fun and sending always good vibes. At least not the last we’ll try to reduce pollution in the world so we’ll try to not use A/C and planting trees for the south tour is on the schedule.
