What Is Living in Madagascar Like for Expats?
From the rainforests and hills to the beaches and clear waters, Madagascar has plenty to offer all who live there. Over 5% of the world's wildlife species can be found in Madagascar, and its diversity doesn't end there. Known locally as Tana, the capital city Antananarivo is the country's economic hub. Madagascar expats often move there as part of the oil, gas, or tourism industries, but there are excellent opportunities in farming and agriculture also. Madagascar's chief exports are coffee and vanilla, and private companies also have impressive stakes in nickel mines. Benefits of living in Madagascar include low living costs, low rental prices, and year-round glorious weather with plenty of space for children to run around in. Although the expat community in Tana isn't large, dedicated compounds offer all the home comforts you could wish for. The American School of Antananarivo has excellent standards, and restaurants like La Varangue offer delicious dishes from around the world.
