Do I need a visa to enter Madagascar?
Yes, you do. Your Brownell advisor can help you get this process taken care of. You’ll also need a valid U.S. passport that is good for 6 months after you return. You’ll need at least one blank visa page in your passport as well.
What is the food like in Madagascar?
Rice is the staple ingredient for many dishes. Zebu (a local beef), pork, chicken, crab, fish, corn, peanuts, and potatoes are all served with rice. Fresh fruits and vegetables are also plentiful. Spicy curries and exquisite French dishes can be found at some of the island’s top restaurants and hotels. The island is also known for its extremely fresh and delicious seafood salad.
What sort of wildlife will I see?
31 varieties of lemurs (found only in the wild in Madagascar), many species of exotic birds (256 types to be exact!), and rare plants such as 1,000 different species of orchids!
