Isalo National Park
Hiking is the main activity in Isalo National Park. If you choose to stay overnight, you also have a chance of seeing nocturnal primates like the endangered Coquerel’s giant mouse lemur and the red-tailed sportive lemur. The park is also known for its reptiles and amphibians, with top spots including the native white-lipped bright-eyed frog, Madagascar boa, and colorfully decorated Malagasy rainbow frog. Over 80 bird species have been recorded at Isalo, of which 27 are endemic to Madagascar. The park is especially famous in birding circles as one of the best places to spot the indigenous Benson’s rock thrush.
