Madagascar in June; weather and where to go
In June the average rainfall continues to decrease as the air becomes cooler and fresher. There are still sporadic showers as we haven’t quite reached what is technically known as the ‘dry season’, but these are interspersed with bright sunshine. June is a popular month to visit Madagascar, but is not classed as peak season, so prices are still quite low and you can avoid any potential crowds.
The land continues to flourish after the wet season, and flora can be striking throughout the rainforests, each alive with striking colours and intriguing wildlife. The highlands are still cool and can be quite wet; however this is one of the best times to head to the southwest, which can get way too hot in the summer months. Isalo National Park, home to many beautiful and unique creatures, including lots of endearing lemurs, is sensational in June, with just the right temperature to be warm and comfortable on your journey.
The dancing lemurs of Anjajavy are also an excellent option at this time as they prance through immaculate gardens, or right on the beach.
