Is it safe and practical to self-drive around the island?

We'd like to tour the island for about 3 weeks. If we can't find a good tour guide, is it safe and practical to drive it ourselves? Any suggestions if we do of for tour guides? Thanks all!

Hi, I would suggest you to take local tour guide because in Madagascar, even many tourist visit there, they always take a local tour guide who can make yout program tour.It is difficult if you do your self tour , even to find the way to visit is not easy.I t is better when to contact locat tour guide because he is more experience, they know all the tour around Mada.

best regard

hi

It is possible but it is not easy and practically overwhelming since there is no sign in many place and street. You can try to use digital map or GPS. It is up to you and no warranty. Most of the time, car rental fee includes a driver. So, why not!
