Departure to Isalo National Park by the famous National Road 7.
We leave for a first discovery of the park. The Isalo is a ruiniform plateau of continental sandstones from the Jurassic. Here the rock has an aspect, a shape and a very variable composition. Nature has adapted to the dry climate. The massif extends to the horizon, dotted with palm trees and satranas and offers us a festival of colours at the approach of sunset.
D 2 : Visit of Isalo National Park
Breakfast at the hotel.
We leave for a short transfer by car to the foot of the Massif of Isalo.
With a small bag on the shoulder, we walk quietly through the amazing scenery made of canyons, pools and rocks with magical erosions. The park is an ecosystem apart ; the endemic vegetation made of aloe, euphorbia, Pachypodium and Kalanchoe … We take our picnic in the forest of Tapia. Around the site, excursions are possible, and a walk towards the summits allows you to enjoy a wonderful view.
