Gratuities: If you feel you have been looked after well by your crew or guides, and you wish to show your appreciation for their services, a monetary tip is very welcomed by those in Madagascar. Here are some suggested guidelines:

  • Around EUR 4 per person, per day (10,000 Ariary) for a guide or a guide/driver.
  • Around EUR 2 (5,000 Ariary) for a park guide, depending on your satisfaction.
  • Around 5% of the bill at a restaurant

As Euro coins cannot be changed into local money in Madagascar, it is advisable to tip in Ariary. We would ask that you please reserve your generosity for tipping for services only, and not providing free hand-outs to children or adults, as this encourages begging.
