Driving tips in Madagascar
Before you arrive and pick up your Sixt car rental in Madagascar, it's a good idea to research the rules of the road.
- In Madagascar, vehicles drive on the right-hand side of the road.
- Police occasionally stop vehicles to carry out random checks - this is nothing to worry about as long as you carry your passport with you and have a visa if required.
- It's important to be aware that most of Madagascar's roads are unpaved, and therefore the roads can be uneven, rocky, or muddy.
- Allow plenty of time for each journey so that you don't have to rush.
What to see with your Sixt car rental in Madagascar
When you rent a car with Sixt in Madagascar you can explore this spectacular country at your own pace. The Parc National de Ranomafana is renowned for its hot springs and the rainforest which is home to different species of lemurs. You can take a guided trek through the rainforest before treating yourself to a luxurious soak in the hot spring water. Alternatively, visit the island's largest lake, Lac Alaotra, where you can take a canoe trip at dawn with a local guide. Madagascar's coastline also gives you ample opportunity to go diving, snorkelling, fishing, or whale watching. With a rented car you are free to plan your own itinerary and enjoy everything that Madagascar has to offer.
