Isalo Rock Lodge
Step back in time in Madagascar's Jurassic Park
Isalo Rock Lodge is a stunning retreat positioned high in the Sandstone Mountains overlooking the Isalo National Park in south western Madagascar. Isalo Rock Lodge is a destination rather than just a hotel and you will leave having experienced one of the most memorable adventures of your life.
The rooms are refined and tastefully decorated, spacious yet kept warm with welcoming colours and carefully chosen furnishings. All rooms are en-suite, have beds luxuriously swathed in mosquito netting and all offer expansive views. The lodge restaurant provides an eclectic mix of European and local Malagasy cuisine, prepared with wholesome ingredients that change with the seasons. Breakfasts are hearty and serve as the fuel for your day. The design of the restaurant and bar area allows you to thoroughly enjoy the beauty of the region through the massive glass panels overlooking the sandstone cliffs and forest below.
Isalo National Park is a fascinating microcosm, illustrating the delicate balance between species, that you can explore by 4x4's, on horseback or on
foot. This is a real wildlife and nature lovers paradise where it is possible to see ring-tailed lemurs, dancing Sifakas and giant chameleons.
There are pools and waterfalls peppered throughout the park and hidden valleys to explore. And at the end of a day in the wild there is nothing
better than taking a dip in the pool before enjoying the orange hues of the sunset as it highlights the unique forms of the surrounding landscape.
