I am hopefully going to stay on Nosy Be on a marine conservation course for 5 or 6 weeks. I read that in 2012 there were riots in Tana & I know that the country isn't politically stable. I was just wondering if anyone had been recently and if they had an inkling of what is going on (UK foreign office advice isn't fab). Basically is it safe to go to Nosy Be & spend a few days in Tana?
Also I have heard bad things about air Madagascar. Is it worth using them?
In addition are there any unmissable things to do in Madagascar?
Also I read that getting money out in Madagascar can be tricky as you can't always use a debit card -what would you recommend?
