The best and most visited by tourists are Ranomafana National Park, Isalo National Park or “the Jurassic Park” (because of its landscapes of eroded sandstone formations), Andasibe National Park and Tsingy de Bemaraha (one of the newest). From tropical forests to mountains and alpine meadows, dramatic landscapes, magnificent canyons and gorges, rivers and coastline – the variety of the scenery is incredible and breathtaking. Madagascar wildlife tours are not to be missed, with so much luxuriant vegetation, unique plants, animals, birds, reptiles, and insects.
