Madagascar in September; weather and where to go
September brings with it the end of the cooler season and temperatures are starting to increase without much more rain (rainy season begins again in September). This is arguably one of the best times to head to Madagascar on holiday.
Children generally go back to school at the start of the month, so it is quiet when compared to July and August. Warmer weather means wildlife that was hibernating in August is now active again; chameleons, snakes, lizards, small lemurs and rodents are again roaming through Madagascar’s jungles and desert plains in plain sight. There is also still a chance to see the last remaining humpback whales off the coast of Ile Sainte Marie.
This is the last month of whale watching season and some may have already started their long journey back to Antarctic waters, but spotting them in the warm coastal Malagasy waters is still very likely and recommended at this time of year.
