Best Time to Visit Madagascar

Madagascar is a large country and therefore the climate varies hugely. While Madagascar can be enjoyed year-round, the principal wet season is from late December through to the month of March often involving cyclones so it is not the best time. The best time to visit Madagascar is between the months of April to mid-December. July to September is the time to see humpback whales. These months offer excellent weather, especially on the beach. October and November are excellent for baby lemurs although lemurs, in general, can be seen year-round. Generally speaking, the north is hot and humid, the east is wetter, and the south is arid. The central highlands are cold and wet between May and October.
