Atsimo-Andrefana capital Toliara (Toliara) is approximately 891 km away from Mahajanga. The distance from Mahajanga to Madagascar?s capital Antananarivo (Antananarivo) is approximately 377 km. Mahajanga is a town and major port in Madagascar island’s northwest coast, at the mouth of the Betsiboka River, whose estuary extends into Bombetoka Bay. The town was the capital of the 18th-century kingdom of Boina. The French occupied Mahajanga in 1895 at the beginning of their conquest of Madagascar. The town’s old sector is confined mainly to the harbour quarter and has some 19th-century Arabian houses. The town’s modern buildings include a Roman Catholic cathedral, a Protestant meeting place, and a mosque. Immigrants from Comoros were almost as numerous in the town as the Malagasy until 1976–77, when most of the former were repatriated to Comoros following riots in Mahajanga. The Comorien population has increased again, and the town also has a substantial Indian merchant population. Fishing, cattle raising, and hardwood lumbering are important in the surrounding area, and coffee, rice, sugarcane, cashew nuts, cassava, cotton, and raffia palms are cultivated.
