State of the roads in Madagascar

Madagascar is a country with a tourist vocation. There are exceptional sites, with endemic fauna and flora, as well as unique landscapes in the world. Most of these sites are accessible by road, particularly by national roads. This article will give you an idea of ​​the state of these.

State of the roads in Madagascar

To travel on national roads in Madagascar, it is advisable to take an all-terrain vehicle. Actually, according to the latest statistics on the road network in Madagascar, 64 % roads need maintenance, but also because of natural disasters.

On the other hand, the rehabilitation of the road network at the national level continues, and appears to be a major priority for the Government.

On the 50 000 km of the existing road network in Madagascar, alone 30 000 km are passable today. And on these 30 000 km, less than 20 % are tarred.

For the rest, these are mainly large, dilapidated tracks, often impassable in the rainy season. The condition of the roads in Madagascar has seen a marked deterioration in recent years, affecting economic and social activities in the country.

Don't worry, several operators offer off-road car rental services, like Coco Lodge Tour Operator.
