Madagascar

Jump to last reply

Some time ago, I posted a concern about Rainbow Tours because I felt that I was not getting timely replies to my inquiries to them. Ultimately, they did reply and offered a fair rationale. My husband and I recently returned from a wonderful visit to Madagascar which Rainbow Tours arranged. They did a fine job in all regards. The trip was well organized, the guides were very good and knowledgeable and the hotels were probably as good as there are in Mad. Altogether, we had an interesting adventure.
I highly recommend visiting Madagascar. The main piece of information which should be kept in mind when planning the trip is that Madagascar is a fascinating but very poor country. The tourism infrastructure there is not well developed. In particular, the roads are extremely poor. As a result, in order to see both the south and the north parts of the country, sometimes the drives are extremely long --many dusty hours on rutted and potholed unpaved roads.
