Madagascar weather overview

On the island of Madagascar you should be prepared for anything.

Vast beaches, high mountains, extinct volcanoes - it's got the lot, and a mixture of tropical weather to match. Thanks to the trade winds, the east coast has heavy rain all year but the rainy season for the central plateau and the rest of the island is from November to March.

The western and southern lowlands are drier and warmer. In fact, warm temperatures prevail across the island, except in the mountains.

What to pack for Madagascar weather

Take light clothes with warmer attire for evenings and mountain visits. Always pack rainwear-just in case!
