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 …
... on our hands....THE MP3 wasn't working!!!!! OMG. How would we survive??? Just fine I was thinking...I like Malagasy music but I was in the front seat, right by the speakers and they often switched from upbeat cool stuff to soppy western ballads. Westlife, Backstreet Boys and Celine Dion are well and truly alive and well in Mada. I almost think the driver suspected I’d disabled it as he threw me a few suspicious glances while he madly ...
... They line the sidewalks near banks or strategic points in markets. Some have discovered the bus stops as a haven for collections. Call it a captive audience if you will. While buses fill, they hover with they hands reaching into the bus hoping someone will drop a note into their dirty, tired fingers.

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.
