Isalo National Park, Isalo

#1 of 7 in Nature in Toliara Province
Trek and swim in one of the natural pools of Isalo National Park, a reserve known for its diverse terrain and wildlife. See Verreaux's sifakas and red-fronted brown lemurs, as well as reptiles like the Madagascar ground boa, white-lipped bright-eyed frog, and Malagasy rainbow frog. You'll need to hire a guide to take you through the 850 sq km (328 sq mi) park, which encompasses sandstone columns, deep ravines, scenic waterfalls, Bismarckia-lined oases, and grasslands. Along the way, look for elephant's foot plant with its magnificent yellow flower, do some bird-watching, or visit a village with zebu (cattle) farmers.
