Getting There & Away
Air Madagascar (www.airmadagascar.com) serves Tamatave (Toamasina), Antalaha, Sambava, Maroantsetra, and Île Sainte Marie, largely in a circuit from Antananarivo (Tana). From Réunion, Air Madagascar flies to Île Sainte Marie and Air Austral flies to Tamatave, both three times weekly.
Almost all land access to Eastern Madagascar is via a single road, the RN2 from Antananarivo. It is possible to drive up the coast from Fort Dauphin (Taolagnaro), but this is 4WD adventure travel, not transportation.
There is a train service running from Moramanga north to Ambatondrazaka, and east from Moramanga and Tamatave. The line also has a limited service from Tana to Andasibe.
