Antananrivo - Tananarive - Tana : The capital city of Madagascar



Antananrivo -- often shorted to "Tana" -- is the capital city of Madagascar. The population is estimated between 1.7 and 3 million people, depending on how the city is defined and who's counting.

Tana is quite like any city you will ever visit with colorful houses decorating the hillsides, extensive rice paddies running through sections of the town, and bustling streets full of cars and Zebu-drawn carts.

Tana is located in the central highlands of Madagascar where the climate is mild. Tana lies in the heartland of the Merina people who look ethnically Indonesian.
