Family holidays with children in Madagascar - attractions and entertainment

Madagascar is not the best choice for tourists with children. Indeed, this is an island of contrasts, a place where rich people neighbor with the poor. Prostitution is not rare on the island. There can be also diseases that children might not be immune to. It is also important to mention dangerous animals and insects. If you still decide that your child is old enough to join your adventure to the distant island, it is better to stick to safer regions, such as Nosy Be archipelago. It is the best choice for permanent accommodation during vacation.
Madagascar offers a rich choice of entertainments to its guests. The majority of these activities are connected with nature in some way or another. …

Nosy Be islands are famous for their clean environment and high safety standards. Due to a comfortable location, it is easy to see all major landmarks of the island during one-day tours from Nosy Be. Tourists can use local airlines and air-conditioned buses to reach other cities and do not make kids feel tired. Tourists with small children can also stay in one of the major cities of the island, such as Antananarivo and Toamasina.
What landmarks do kids enjoy visiting? First of all, this is Parc Ivoloina that is located not far from Toamasina port. A visit to this zoological park will bring many happy moments to both children and adults. Small children and teenagers will equally enjoy an opportunity to visit old fortresses that are located in Mahavelona and Vohimasina. Ruins of the Portuguese port are another fantastic place that offers a genuine outlook of the island’s history and atmosphere. Teenagers will be super excited to visit this landmark as they will be able to make many unique photographs for their social networks. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

Without a doubt, nature is the biggest treasure of Madagascar. All children, without any exception, love animals. However, not many are lucky to see animals in their natural habitat. In Madagascar, they have this unique opportunity. Don’t forget to visit the sacred forest located on Nosy Komba Island (by the way, the name of this island contains the name of its main animal – lemur). Cute animals are not only brave enough to stay close to humans but also happily get food right from hands. Sellers in the nearby settlement offer bananas that are suitable for feeding animals. Needless to say, children are very excited to hand feed charming lemurs.
The Isalo National Park is one of the best destinations for travelers who want to spend a day outdoors. Your kids will be excited and amazed to see the breathtaking sceneries of the park. Teenagers, in their turn, will not miss an opportunity to take pictures of rare flowers and plants. By the way, there are also many lemurs in the Isalo National Park. Forests of Atsinanana are one more gorgeous and unique place to visit in Madagascar. All fans of bird watching visit this part of the island to see rare species. If your teenager likes snorkeling or diving, it is time to visit the coastal part of the Masoala national park where divers can see rare corals.
It is hard to call Madagascar a popular shopping destination. Travelers visit this island primarily to enjoy wild nature on the land and in the water, …

In case your child is more into urban recreation or your kid is yet too small for a forest adventure, it is not hard to find beautiful and interesting places to visit in the city. In the capital, don’t forget to visit the Rova of Antananarivo, a fantastic palace ensemble. Kids may also find it interesting to see the Presidential Palace, as well as palaces of ministers and prime ministers. When it comes to museums, children may find it interesting to see a photo gallery and a gallery of art. Finally, the Museum of Archaeology and the Museum of Paleontology, both of which are open in Antananarivo, are also great places to visit.
