This park holds the last forest along this stretch of road.



11/3/2017: We got an early morning start from Ifaty where the choking on brush-fire smoke kicked off an exciting day. After not dying, we stopped to meet some spear-carrying guy to help us find sandgrouse. A short time later, we encountered the patch of remnant forest known as Zombiste National Park where we hiked around for a couple hours.
