Watch the sun setting behind the eerie sandstone formations of Isalo National Park
Cast in dramatic sandstone, years of erosion have carved Madagascar’s Isalo National Park into deep canyons and wind tunnels, undoubtedly making this one of the island’s most visually striking regions. For the Bara tribe, the caves in Isalo National Park also serve as sacred burial grounds.
Your trip to Isalo National Park can include a tour of the area’s flora: plants endemic here include the distinctive Elephant's Foot, which grows in abundance, and the native species of aloe. But it’s not just plants that are fascinating in Isalo: the forest makes the ideal home for the ring-tailed lemur, the red fronted brown lemur and the Verreaux's sifaka.
Even the most hardened cynic will be awed on a sunset tour to Fenetre. As the French name suggests, this rock formation provides a unique natural window through which to watch the sun set.
