Overall rating

To be honest, I was not particularly impressed with our visit to Isalo. The area we visited was relatively crowded, not particularly rich in wildlife (although our guide was good did what he could). However, it is worth to keep in mind that most of what you see is not to be found outside Madagascar. It made me sad to realise that the beautiful Verraux's Sifaka we found was the last remaining of its kind in the area. Although with quite some effort we were lucky to find interesting wildlife (Ring-tailed Lemurs, Chameleons a few snakes and some birds), we met quite a few that were not so lucky. Weather was fine, and as we started early it wasn't too hot and we 'missed' most of the crowds. Scenery is great, but it is hard to be very impressed by the waterfalls and pools. One point of advice; if you have a sensitive stomack, don't bother going for the served lunch in the park. You will waste time there, it is crowded and noisy. Rather bring some fruite and spend the time searching.
