National Parks

Ethiopia's national parks are located in different parts of the country. With its landscape ranging from alpine moorland to Savannahs and deserts which has given rise to a rich diversity of animals and plant species, Ethiopia is one of the most physically and biologically diverse countries in the world. Out of 823 species of birds 16 are found only in Ethiopia. Of 277 species of wildlife, 7 are Endemic mammals. Here are some of the national parks that are home to birds and animals.

Semien Mountains National Park

The highest peak with an altitude of 4,620 metres above sea level, Ras Dashen, is also located within the National Park. Ras Dashen is the fourth highest mountain in Africa. The rich flora and beautiful scenery with big canyons makes the area a premier destination for trekking. It is usually riffered as the 'Roof of Africa'.

Bale Mountains National Park

The mountains rise to a height of over 4,000 metres(13,123ft), with Mount Batu, the second highest peak in Ethiopia, rising to 4,307 metres (14,131 ft) high.

The Bale Mountains National Park, which covers an area of 2,470 square kilometres(1,535 square miles), and through which one can either walk or drive, is one of the best places to see the endemic Simien fox, the Mountain nyala and Menilek's bushbuck.

Not far from the Bale Mountains is one of the world's most spectacular and extensive underground caverns: the Sof Omar cave system. Formed by the Weyb River as it changed its course in the distant past and carved a new channel through limestone foothills, Sof Omar is an extraordinary natural phenomenon of breathtaking beauty.

Travel Agent in EthiopiaBoat trip on Lake Chamo is along the best anywhere in Ethiopia. One can spot many Hippos and the world's most spectacular concentrations of Giant Crocodiles (as it is called locally "The Crocodile Market"). The water birds are great and the scenery is truly unforgettable. Fishing for Nile Perch and many other species by locals on their traditional boat is by far the best in the country.

The other National Parks are Awash, Abyatta-Shalla, Mago, Omo, Yangudirasa and Gambela National parks consisting their own distinctive flora and fauna. There are also four protected areas.
