Madagascar in August; weather and where to go
August has a similar climate to July, cooler and crisper than Madagascar’s summer months. Well into the peak season now, our advice still stands on booking well in advance so you can get the safari you want, including perfect accommodation for you and reasonable flights. It’s a popular month with tourists, especially with Madagascar’s amazing family options and it being in the middle of the school summer holidays across Europe.
The cool air does mean some animals hibernate, mainly reptiles and small mammals; including chameleons, giant jumping rats, tenrecs and dwarf lemurs.
The weather is at its mildest this time of the year; meaning you stay reasonably cool and comfortable during rainforest or jungle treks, and huge downpours aren’t too common.
