After breakfast, head to the Great South and Madagascar’s most visited park, Isalo National Park. The drive is along some of the best roads in the country and the scenery is breathtaking. Expect to spend most of the day driving. En route stop at Anja Community Reserve, managed by the local community and a vital example of sustainable tourism in Madagascar. The reserve boasts a diverse variety of endemic species, including several families of orchids and saxicolous plants. Explore the reserve then have lunch in a nearby restaurant. After a long day of driving, we check in to our hotel, have dinner, and relax in anticipation of Isalo National Park – over 200,000 acres of beautiful landscapes of sandstones, canyons, fauna and flora, natural swimming pools, and waterfalls. Overnight at Le Relais de la Reine.
It was an extremely long day of driving.
First – sights along the way –
that is just a taste of what driving through a town or city will show you.
But the stars of today were ring-tailed lemurs. Trust me, they are funny, amazing and not at all concerned about humans in their habitat.
and more lemurs both in the trees where they have a tendency to move around like Rocky the Flying Squirrel
There are also Zebu
and more ring tails down at the water and otherwise having an interesting time…
if you click on the picture you will get a slightly larger version. I did limit the size…
