View on Andafiavaratra, a good camera allows that

In Summer (Dec-March)

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Raincoat or sthg lighter with water-repellent material (windbreaker). Linen & cotton gear. I don't recommend sandals if you're walking. Rain and walking in the city are not always comfy neither clean. Loafers are OK, walking shoes: not necessary if only for urban Tana.

Toiletries and Medical Supplies: For Tana specifically, you'd find everything in pharmacies there.. but bring your medical prescriptions and your usual stacks if you're on some treatment. Would I remind you of anti-malarial treatment and hepathitis meningitis vaccinations ?

Photo Equipment: Sthg with a good telelens for the city being on many levels, it allows (and requires !) some more sophisticated cameras.. well, if photography is your stuff. Also, notice the brighter light in summer, sometimes humid but less than on coastal cities.

Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: No beach urban Tana. ;-)

Miscellaneous: Patience... be it being stuck in a traffic jam or going (sometimes) through some red tape.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
