Join us for a virtual tour of the capital of Madagascar, Antananarivo. Tana, as we call the city locally, is a vibrant city boasting popular tourist attractions and plenty of interesting local spots, too. Take a tour with our experienced guide Princy and get to know Tana through the eyes of a local!
During this virtual tour, you’ll get a chance to see some of the top sights in the city, including Rova Palace! You’ll also get to see some of Princy’s favourite spots, with local insights into life in Tana. You can ask questions and find out everything you’d like to know about the capital city…and beyond!
Bask in the joys of travel, all from the comfort of your own home! Until we can journey together through Madagascar in person, we look forward to sharing a glimpse of our wondrous island.
Want to take this virtual experience even further? Join us for a virtual cooking class to learn how to make traditional Malagasy food.

Mora Travel dedicates itself to organizing ‘sustainable’ trips to Madagascar every day. Sustainability is very important to us! By organizing these trips, we believe our travelers can experience Madagascar and enjoy everything that the country has to offer. And because you are traveling with us, we can contribute to preserving biodiversity and endemicity and giving local people in Madagascar a real chance.
Madagascar is not an easy destination to promote sustainable tourism as the logistics in remote areas are often very basic, the options are limited, and many resources are hard to get by. There aren’t always sustainable options, but wherever possible we opt for the most sustainable choice. Nevertheless, we do promote responsible travel to lessen our negative impact on our destination as much as possible.
This means we work together with partners that are environmentally conscious (renewable energy, sustainable waste management) while also looking after the social and economic wellbeing of the local people. We give preference to local Malagasy accommodations, businesses or for example parks that employ local staff under good conditions, that use mainly local products and/or are engaged in community initiatives. This means that the hotels during the trip are a real mix of very simple and luxury hotels depending on the criteria mentioned above.
We also contribute to reforestation. To compensate for the carbon dioxide emissions of all tourists who travel with us, we plant trees. The purpose of planting trees is to house animals, because they have less and less place to live because of deforestation. We still have a long way to go, but we feel that making this a choice and communicating this to our partners will help create a larger sustainable tourism community in the long run.
