... is located in the Southern region of Madagascar.

The RN7 highway arrives from the Andringitra area to the northeast.

Isalo is a national reserve centred on a large sandstone massif which in parts has been eroded into wierd and wonderful formations.

This is a dry area and the mountains are surrounded by dry deciduous forests, punctuated with magical waterfalls and secret pools.

There is a good network of paths and trails, with the chance of encounters with sifakas, brown lemurs and ring-tailed lemurs.

The park is situated on the RN7 and conveniently breaks the journey between the central highlands and the southwest coast. Most people stay for two nights, but keen walkers may choose to stay longer in order to access the more remote parts of the reserve.

The best accommodation is at the upmarket Le Relais de la Reine and Le Jardin du Roy, backed up by Isalo Rock Lodge.

Mid-range options include Isalo Ranch and Satrana Lodge.

There are also several lower cost options in the nearby village of Ranohira.

The RN7 continues southeast to reach the coast at Tulear area.
