About Landscape

Madagascar Security Overview

Madagascar crime statistics indicate a high level of petty crime and pickpocketing in Antananarivo. Criminals are known to be particularly active in tourist locations and will focus targeting opportunities on foreign travelers. There is an increasing threat from violent crime involving armed robberies and assault against tourists.  Attacks are reported to be common during the hours of darkness.

The level of driving in Madagascar is poor in comparison to western standards. The road conditions vary but are generally inadequate for drivers unfamiliar with the environment. Potholes and other unexpected hazards are common and the risk of being involved in a road traffic collision (RTC) is increased, especially during rainy season when visibility is significantly reduced.
