A taste of Tana's history, some insight into the local customs and taboos plus a stunning view over the city - you should definitely start your Tana visit here. Additionally, as Rova is situated on the very top of the hill, you can stroll comfortably...More

This is such an interesting place. Our guide was wonderful. He loves his country and is proud to show it off. The guides are so knowledgeable and know their history. A beautiful place to picnic as well.

The Queen's Palace is located at the top of the highest hill in Tana. The 360 degree view is unsurpassed in the city. A tour provides historical perspective on the unified kingdom period. Unfortunately, a fire several years ago severely damaged the main buildings and...More

The queen's palace's visit is an oportunity to get a deeper understanding of traditional Malagasi culture and history. Most intersting were the Eunuch's statue, the circumcised pennis next to a Napolean style eagle, and the preserved carved wooden furniture at the royal chapel. Dont hesitate...More
