Best Time To Visit
April to October are, in general, the best months to visit Madagascar. This dry, cool season is what naturalists refer to as the austral winter. Overall, this is a good time to travel: days are bright and usually warm to very warm and nights mild.
Temperatures are highest at sea level and also higher in the north and on the west coast. The south can be much chillier: July in Fort Dauphin will have you glad of a fleece and an extra blanket at night.
