Destination Details

Ambatolampy, Madagascar

Ambatolampy

Ambatolampy (70 km south of Tana) is the largest town between the capital and Antsirabe (70 km south of Antananarivo). It is an important centre of auto mechanics where lots of taxi-brousse are usually repaired. But it is mainly known for its forging and foundry industry (unfortunately the traditional forging art has been lost today). This small typical town deserves much better than just stop. The beauty of its natural scenery and its relatively cool climate invites like no other place for outdoor activities. Do not miss craftsmen building aluminium pots (one man can produce about twenty per day). Other workshops are dedicated to the production of "football games" featuring the best international teams. The frame is made of pine, players are made of aluminium and are hand-painted. A payment system is also designed to insert coins.
