Avašas Dabas parks

Awash National Park.
Etiopijas dabas parks.

Lying in the lowlands east of Addis Ababa, and astride the Awash river, is one of the finest reserves in Ethiopia. The Awash River, one of the major rivers of the Horn of Africa, waters important agricultural lands in the north of Ethiopia and eventually flows into the wilderness of the Danakil Depression. The dramatic Awash Falls, as the river tumbles into its gorge, is a sight not to be missed in the national park.
Awash National Park, surrounding the dormant volcano of Fantale, is a reserve of arid and semi-arid woodland and savannah, with riverine forests along the Awash River. Forty six species of animals have been identified here, including Beisa Oryx and Swayne's Hartebeest. The birdlife is prolific, especially along the river and in the nearby Lake Basaka, and there are 5 endemic amongst the 392 species recorded. A special attraction is the beautiful clear pools of the Filwoha hot springs.
Access to the park is best from the main Addis/Assab highway, and there is a caravan lodge at Kereyu Lodge at the edge of the gorge.
