Southern Madagascar in detail

Flights & getting there

Fort Dauphin and Tuléar are the two hubs of the south, both served by Air Madagascar/Tsaradia. Tuléar is the gateway to the Great Reef and is easily reached from Antananarivo (Tana) by taxi-brousse (bush taxi) or private car along the sealed, but deteriorating RN7. Fort Dauphin and the cape can only be reached by 4WD, although the tenuous security situation means it is preferable to fly to/from Tana.
