Sleep[edit][add listing]

  • The section on "Sleep" seems VERY odd. There are no citations and it does not make sense.
Howdy and welcome to Wikitravel. Please feel free to plunge forward and edit the page. Just FYI, we generally do not cit travel information. Let us know if you have any questions! Thanks. Maj 14:14, 6 August 2006 (EDT)


  • What would be a good time of the year to go? 06:04, 11 June 2007 (EDT)


I do not really see any reason to go against the official split into 6 provinces. --Burmesedays 10:15, 26 January 2010 (EST)

I know next to nothing about Madagascar, but you may want to browse through this guidebook on Google Books (technically, it's a preview, but nearly all pages are there). It's the most recent edition, too! AHeneen 10:22, 26 January 2010 (EST)
Excellent and will do, I know a little bit about Madagascar as it is on the list of places I really want to visit. --Burmesedays 10:37, 26 January 2010 (EST)
Perhaps you know then that the Malagasy language is most closely related to the languages of Borneo and the first inhabitants were Austronesian from Indonesia/PNG? AHeneen 10:45, 26 January 2010 (EST)
I do indeed. An indonesian/polynesian language origin. It is the ecology of this place that blows my mind. The so-called 8th continent. Extraordinary fauna and amazing landscapes. --Burmesedays 10:51, 26 January 2010 (EST)
Map done. Madagascar has to get the award for "most important country with almost zero coverage by Wikitravel".--Burmesedays 04:26, 15 February 2010 (EST)

Official languages[edit]

An editing war has started over whether English is or is not an official language. Is it? Ikan Kekek 08:21, 19 September 2011 (EDT)

This] says English was removed as an official language in 2010. However, that is Wikipedia and the comment has no citation, so God only knows if it is real or not. --burmesedays 08:28, 19 September 2011 (EDT)
