Getting There – Madagascar
Travel restrictions and additional entry requirements may apply for Madagascar due to the coronavirus pandemic and if so, can change from day-to-day. Please visit our coronavirus page to stay informed about the latest developments.
Madagascar's main airport is Ivato International Airport (TNR), located 12km/7mi north of Antananarivo (Tana). The second international airport is located in the north of the country, offshore on Nosy Be, the island’s most popular beach destination. This airport is mainly used for all-inclusive beach packages.
Road travel is possible, but due to the size of the island and the bad condition of the roads, most tours incorporate at least one domestic flight.
In most cases your local tour operator will arrange pickup at the airport and organize further transportation as part of your travel package.
