Andringitra National Park

Andringitra National Park is located near the town of Ambalavao and was set up in 1999. One of the most beautiful parks in Madagascar, Andringitra comprises low altitude rain forest, the granite peaks of the Andringitra mountain range, deep valleys and spectacular waterfalls such as Riandahy and Raimbavy. The park is an excellent trekking destination, both for wildlife walks through the forest and mountain trekking to the summit of Mount Imarivolanitra (Pic Boby), at 2658m the highest point in the south of Madagascar. There is a wide variety of wildlife in the park, including many species of birds, frogs and lemurs.

Isalo National Park

Isalo National Park in the south of Madagascar is a spectacular mountainous region where natural erosion of the sandstone rock has created a dramatic landscape of canyons, gorges and rock towers. Covering over 800 km², the park makes for excellent trekking through the beautiful scenery as well as having opportunities for wildlife spotting. The magnificent Canyon des Makis is home to ring-tailed lemurs and Verreaux's sifakas and the park also comprises numerous snakes, lizards, chameleons and birds. Another highlight of the park is the natural oasis of the Piscine Naturelle, ideal for a swim amidst the arid landscape.
