TravelPod Member ReviewsTana-Jacaranda Antananarivo
The Tana-Jacaranda was a bit our home in Madagascar. If you travel around you will have Tana always as a central point! The people of the hotel are so kind and helpful. The rooms are super clean, great place to hang around on the balcony and living room. Computer and wi-fi available. And the location is perfect, maybe a bit dark in the night but we went so many times our at night and never had a bad experience. close to the nice restaurants and in about 10 minutes you're down at the Rue Independencia were the market, supermarket, shops etc are. I think all thanks to the very kind manager, she is very active to update her hotel all the time.

... there is a real party atmosphere, social gatherings around a grill, eating zebu kebabs and drinking rice water. Kids running after the loose chickens and dogs in the street.

... market=some stalls on the side of the road) which had bags and souvenirs, then we went to another one which specialised in hats. We then drove to an aluminium "factory" - which was essentially a family's backyard- where they melted down aluminium and used soil/dust moulds to create pots. The aluminium was like the gold when melted at sovereign hill, and they poured it right next to their feet in bare feet! (Apparently safer, as shoes will catch on fire from the heat!!) ...
... last 2 weeks. So we shared pizzas and stories last night and we all headed back to the airport at 4am – it was dead quiet, although looking hopeful as the check in board still showed that the flight was leaving at 6am…
We waited, and waited – and then went to ask at the Air Madagascar desk. Of course, a delay – until 10.30am. It had been decided last night but of course they did not think/know how to tell us. So we just crashed on the floor, ...
... because I had exactly 5 hours before I was to wake up the following morning and get set to go on the tour.
I must mention that I'm technically here on business. I'm a travel agent and joined this tour to learn about Madagascar. This is known in the biz as an "Educational" or "Familiarization". Group tours are not the usual way I travel but I had to do it this way...plus my company paid for it so it was a bonus because I couldn't have afforded ...
... some of the National Park guides. In Madagascar, a job in tourism is the holy grail for those after the tourist dollar, but it appears it is these people (well, some at least) who try any means possible to screw as much extra money as possible out of the tourist, in some cases, resorting to unethical methods. It really left an unsavoury taste in my mouth. Poverty was very in-your-face, with many beggars.
Madagascar is, I suppose, a relatively cheap ...
