I never normally write reviews, but this book was so below par that I have felt compelled to warn others.

The writer(s) seem to have the attitude that you should only go to Madagascar if you're a "real" traveller and cast thinly veiled scourn upon areas in the country that are more tourist orientated and therefore more easily accessible.

Even the sections covering more remote parts of this glorious country give you no helpful advice and any they do give is seriously out of date (the book was written in 2004, but I think some of it was actually written in 2002 or even earlier).

If you want a travel guide to Madagascar, buy the Bradt's guide. It is up to date and the writers are not so pretentious.

This guide doesn't have much information, I found loads of errors especially about wildlife. I think Lonely planets books are good for developed countrys but for madagascar this is NOT the best one out there.
