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.

... generated by eco-tourism certainly help. Alternative crops (to rice) and new farming methods might reduce the need for slash and burn agriculture, but these changes are up against ingrained cultural practices. Certainly, controlling population growth is critical to conservation efforts. But family planning has only limited success in the cities.

... eating here, so I opt for a sealed bag of sweet bread, while Rivo has his tractional breakfast of rice soup. Malagasy eat rice with every meal, its so inbuilt that if rice is missed in one meal, apparently its impossible to get to sleep that night. Because of the long drive ahead, we where supposed to leave early. But as the Malagasy say 'mura mura', which means 'slowly slowly' or as I call it, 'Africa time', everything takes longer, ...
... but, also the emotional support of my wonderful friends and those closest to me. Who I know will be, for the next five months, looking out for my next Facebook post, email, text or phone call. I remember as a kid watching all the BBC nature programs, wondering if I would ever see those things as they are in the wild, and not at Dudley Zoo. I have been so fortunate, to swim with Whale Sharks, visit the ...
... I say 10-seater, I mean it somehow finds a way to seat closer to 15 plus the conductor who hangs out the mostly open sliding door to collect more people at stops. And for 18 cents, I get to work. I’ve even mastered to art of getting out of this contraption. I somehow mutter I want out, in broken Malagasy which is answered by bewildered looks of course, and the bus stops sooner or later so that I can crawl over 10 or so people and fall out onto the street ...
... nation as our closest neighbour, it's only when we travel further afield that it becomes obvious how vulnerable this makes us. Colonisation by the French left an indelible mark on the Malagasy (Madagascan) people, with French still the national language despite gaining independence in 1962. Richard's French improves by the hour, whereas mine languishes at something less than 3rd form level! Outside of this city English will be as rare as hens teeth, so I'm ...
