Travel Madagascar: The inspiring Red Circus, Mahajanga

If you ever receive a bottled art from Mahajanga with a scenery of Madagascar or the portrait of Bob Marley drawn with multiple colours of sand then the artist has most likely been to Red Circus. Located past the airport the red, white and gold sandy hills of Red Circus serve as an inspiration and raw material for the creative minds.


What to do at Red Circus?
While you are here try climbing on the hills the scenery from an elevation is worth it! However be careful as the sand is slippery and crumbly, you don’t want to go tumbling down. Always ensure you watch your step.

Once you have done admiring the sand take a walk down the valley to the source of a natural spring. Many local tourists will be gathered there applying natural mud face masks and drinking from the spring. As in most Madagascan touristic spots, the spring is also part of mythical belief and many go to cleanse themselves as a form of prayer. I don’t know about it’s magical powers but the water tasted good. So if anything quench your thirst!

Tips and Recommendations

– You can hire a buggy and ride it on the sands of red circus for a more adventurous tour
– You need to hire a car to get to Red Circus or you mau chose to catch a Taxi Brousse to aiport and then hike for about 10km
– A guide may not be necessary
