The Gambella National park is situated 800km in western Ethiopian near the town of Gambella. The park is created for the protection of larger animals particularly white-eared Kob, Nile lechwe and white-headed stork with extensive swamp habitat. It is the largest national park in Ethiopia which comprises a place of adventure and challenge.
Traveling across the endless undulating plains of high Sudanese grass, visitors can enjoy a sense of achievement in just finding their way. This is Ethiopia’s true tropical zone and here is found all the elements of the African safari, enhanced by a distinctly Ethiopian flavor.
The park hosts several wildlife not found elsewhere in Ethiopia including the white-eared kob along with other riverbank residents that are the Nile lechwe, buffalo, giraffe, tiang, waterbuck, roan antelope, zebra, bushbuck, Abyssinian reedbuck, warthog, hartebeest, lion, elephant and hippopotamus. The banks of the baro are rich in birdlife and thus give visitors an extra advantage.
