Arrive in Antananarivo, built over twelve hills, Madagascar’s capital is a blend of the old and new – Old wooden style houses, french colonial buildings and modern offices and apartments.
For those arriving on time our Leader plans to meet you in the hotel reception at 5pm for the welcome meeting and for those that wish, there is the chance to go out for dinner. There are no activities planned today, so you are free to arrive in Antananarivo at any time. If you would like to receive a complimentary airport transfer today, you’ll need to arrive at Ivato International Airport (TNR) which is around 15 minutes’ drive from the hotel. Should you miss the meeting, your leader will inform you of any essential information as soon as you catch up.
If your flight arrives earlier in the day, perhaps you might choose to explore independently. This once medieval capital, which is affectionately known as ‘Tana’, where the houses appear stacked one upon the other down the sloping hills of the highlands.
