What’s the best way to get around Antananarivo?
Taxis are one of the best, most affordable options, and you can find them almost everywhere. Make sure to negotiate the fares before getting in, as they may change drastically from one driver to the other. While the 'taxi-be' minivans are more budget-friendly, the routes are not easy to understand for foreigners. They could also be somewhat unsafe, so keep an eye on your belongings if you end up using them.
