Travel Alert

Your point of entry to Madagascar is most likely Ivato International Airport (TNR) in Antananarivo (Tana). If you’ve booked a tour, your tour operator will pick you up from the airport and handle everything from there.

Isalo National Park is very accessible as it is located on the ‘Route National’ between Fianarantsoa and Toliara. The park can easily be incorporated into any road trip in southern Madagascar.

However, the most direct way to visit the park is to fly to Toliara (Tuléar). The distance from Toliara to the park is 240km/150mi, and the driving time is about 3½ hours.
