"Road trip by 4*4, taxi-brousse" Faritanin' Antananarivo Transportation Tip by Norali
Faritanin' Antananarivo Transportation: 3 reviews and 3 photos
Thay are my favourite transportation means to go to a city to another since they allow you to see landscapes. Besides, travelling by taxi-brousse with other passengers is a good way to know about Malagasy people since this transportation means is used by Malagasy of all kinds.
Book seats within taxi-brousse companies or associations in Tana city. Be careful to book in advance since this is a really sought-after means (cheaper, adventure). Taxi-brousses are often cars like a sedan with 8-9 seats or vans.
OR, rent a sedan car with a chauffeur-guide who will show you around cities. This was our choice to travel from Center to South of Madagascar.
In Tana, book your seats at taxi-brousses station in Ampasapito. This station is dealing with roadtrips to Centre cities such as Mantasoa, Manjakandriana... I think departures would be there as well.
For trips to the South, book your seats at taxi-brousses station in Anosibe. This station is dealing with roadtrips to Southern parts (Antsirabe, Fianarantsoa, Toliara, Taolagnaro, Morondava..). I think departures would be there as well.
Antananarivo-Antsirabe: 170 km.
Fare (on Feb 2006): 5000 Ariary for a leg of Tana-Antsirabe (2.5 euro or a bit less, quite the same amount in USD). Know however that this fare uses to treble during Xmas-NY season... to the detriment of passengers !! This has reportedly been so for 20 years !!
