Madagascar in April; weather and where to go
After heavy rains and cyclones in January to March, April provides somewhat of a relief for Madagascar. Although there may still be heavy downpours, they are interspersed with bright sunshine, enticing out all sorts of wildlife from hiding. We consider this the start of the tourism season, as parks are open and ready for the first visitors of the year.
National Parks such as Andasibe are lush and green, and in Berenty, the green flora contrasts magnificently with the orange, dusty looking ground where you’ll often find ringtail lemurs.
In fact this is a great time in general to spot most lemurs as they come out to enjoy the fresh countryside, along with the reptiles and insects which are active in April and easily seen.
