We Malagasy people use our native language called: MALAGASY LANGUAGE, this is the first official language used overall Madagascar.
The second official language is the French language, and many people understand French.
The third language that we use is the English language, but few people understand this third one, and it is very rare to find some one who speak and understand English well, that's way it is strongly advice to use the service of an official Tour operator company who can organize best tours and could furnish the best qualified English speaking guide for the tourists who want to visit Madagascar island, to easiness your trip in the country if you don't speak French.
The local money used in Madagascar is called ARIARY ( AR for locale use, but MGA for international transaction or payment), and this money is used overall the country
In general: 1 Euro = 3 100 AR, the definitive rate depends in towns where you change your money.
Madagascar is among the tropical countries, and the general climate in the island is tropical humid, however the west area of Madagascar is more arid and dry during the dry season (June till November), and the south part is sub- desertic area, and dry almost during the year.
The Air Madagascar Company is the only one domestic air company in the island, and this company has daily domestic flights links the capital Antananarivo to the rest of the island.
For more information about these domestic flights, please visit the Air Madagascar web-site: www.airmadagascar.com
Many locale companies and free -lance drivers offers the service of cars rental (with or without driver) for you who need that, but be careful it is always better to remember that if you don't speak French it is STRONGLY ADVISE TO HAVE THE SERVICE OF ENGLISH SPEAKING GUIDE, cause few drivers could understand or speak English well here in Madagascar
If you need this service, Overall tour madagascar could help you to find the best option cars depending on your needs and budgets, with English speaking guide and driver or only English speaking driver (Guides and drivers carefully selected by Overall Tour Madagascar company).
