Awash National Park

Awash National ParkThe Awash National Park, lying in the lowlands 220 km due East of Addis Ababa and striding the awash River, is one of the finest nature reserves in Ethiopia. The Awash River is one of the major rivers in the Horn of Africa which is used for agricultural activities and hydroelectric power production. The River finally drains to the north-eastern part of Ethiopia into the wilderness of Danakil Depression. The dramatic Awash falls in the national park, as the River tumbles into its gorge, is a site no to be missed. A special attraction is the beautiful clear pools of the hot springs (Filwoha).

The Awash National park, surrounding the dormant volcano of Fantale, is a reserve of arid and semi-arid woodland and Savannah with reverie forests along the Awash River. Forty-Six species of animals have been identified here, including Beisa Oryx (the most visible mammal in the national park), animus baboon, hamadryads baboon and Swayne`s Hartebeest, to name a few. The bird life is also prolific, especially along the river, and 392 species of birds are recorded in the National park.

Bale Mountains National Park

Bale Mountains National parkBale Mountains National park has an area of 2,000 km2 and is set with high altitude plateau that is broken by numerous spectacular volcanic plugs and peaks, beautiful alpine lakes and rushing mountain streams that descend into deep rocky gorges on their way to the lowlands. As you ascend higher into the mountains, you will experience changes in the vegetation from juniper forests to heather moorlands and alpine meadows, which at various times of year exhibit an abundance of colorful wildflowers. The Bale Mountains National Park contains the largest area for Afro–Alpine habitat in the whole of the continent. The Park gives visitors opportunities for unsurpassed mountain walking, horse trekking, scenic driving and the chance to view many of Ethiopia’s endemic birds and mammals, particularly the Ethiopian Wolf, Mountain Nyala, Menelik’s Bush Buck and many other species of animals in addition to Endemic birds such as Roget Rail. The Harenna forest is also unique vegetation in the National Park.
