Madagascar in March; weather and where to go
January to March is the rainy or ‘wet’ season in Madagascar, and these rains are really quite heavy still in March, ranging from around 30mm in the far south all the way to 284mm (ish) in the north east. The south is drier and traversable, but as with January and February, this is not a month we recommend travel.
March is warm and wet, resulting in humidity. Roads to national parks and certain lodges are closed due to being thick with mud and some operators still are not running due to weather conditions and their unpredictability. Some of the areas that remain open are difficult to get to, increasing journey times and causing a bumpier, more uncomfortable ride. The temperature lingers around 30 degrees Celsius, being hotter and dryer in the south west than the north east.
Cyclones are still possible in March, although they are more likely in February.
