Travel Blogs from Antananarivo
After a short 4 hour flight :) we arrived Tuesday October 22 in Anatananarivo (Tana) the capital of Madagascar. I think I've got this island already on my travel wish list for maybe 20 years and now we are here! We bought a visa for 3 months on the airport for $85 pp and actually this went very smooth and quick. During the transfer to our hotel …
Well Travel wasn't meant to be easy. Anything bad that I have said about the bus system on Reunion Island I now unreservedly repudiate. Madagascar is fantastic, blinding sunlight in the mornings and cooler, languid afternoons, all of which we viewed from the comforts of Tana-Jacaranda as we attempted to plan our coming weeks here. We are trying to …
Wow.....we're in f&%$ing Africa.
Stepping off the plane from Saint Denis into Antananarivo is, without being too cliched, a Culture Shock. The seeming indifference and casual air of Reunion's customs service is replaced by multiple passport checks, immunisation cards, visa scrutiny and an angry security official when I tried to take a …
... out for some typical Malagasy food with another of her friends. Tim had the Ravitoto while I got stuck into Pork ribs in a sauce with fresh water crayfish for under $5 each!! We certainly had been eating well since we got here. The night came to a pleasant close as we were introduced into Madagascan Karaoke culture. The waiter started up a strangled wail to a slow ballad and other customers joined in in-turn. The lack of tone, harmony and pitch was made up for by passion ...
... and with a quiet hope that their child will fare better than the next if one has taken a bad turn, they pass the extra syrup and lean in to watch over their neighbour’s child when his mother needs a moment for a break.

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.
