Viajar a Madagascar

Nature in its purest form

Madagascar is the fourth largest island in the world. It is one of the top 10 most biodiverse places on the planet and a trip to Madagascar is a return to Eden. After the break-up ofGondwana, many groups of animals and plants remained on or reached the island, evolving there and becoming a refuge for species that had disappeared from the African and Asiancontinents. The country is home to varied landscapes and climates, mountainous regions in the central plateau, dry plains in the south and humid areas in the east, all surrounded by 5000 km of coastline.The Malagasy people, of black-African and Indonesian-Malay origin are shy and hospitable which is representative of Madagascar’s contrast, sometimes feeling as if they are in Africa and sometimes in Asia. All of these attractions make Madagascar a must for curious travellers looking for new and different experiences.

Sanidad - Vacunas

Rift Valley advises you to consult with international immunization centers prior to travelling.


A visa is required in all cases, and one must present their departure flight from the country. Visas may be obtained at the Consulate of Madagascar in Barcelona, and at the airport in Antananarivo.


The currency of Madagascar is the ariary. It is advisable to change euros or dollars to the local currency because credit card payments are not common.


Famadinha, or exhumation: families with deceased loved ones exhume the corpses to change their shrouds. It is observed between June and October, and, apart from the funerary act itself, constitutes a family holiday. Music and food are combined with folk songs and dances. According to anthropological sources, this peculiar exhumation allows spirits to pass into the Kingdom of Death ina "clean" way. Famor, or circumcision: boys are circumcised to acquire virility. In the villages, this ceremony is held, usually between June and September, provided that there are enough boys.
