InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Madagascar

Hello to all Americans in Madagascar! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Madagascar? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Madagascar which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Madagascar is a dream for outdoors enthusiasts. The world’s fourth-largest island is a fascinating city known for its diverse ecosystems, rainforest, unique wildlife, hiking and diving opportunities, its festivals, thriving villages, and much more! With the steadily improving road network, taxis brousse (bush taxis), Bajaj motorized trishaws (tuk-tuks), cyclo-pousses (cycle rickshaws) and pousses-pousses (handcarts), navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in the small villages on the island, which are a short journey away from Madagascar’s center.

Although Madagascar has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Madagascar, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
