Bale Mountains National Park
Details of Bale Mountains National Park
In keeping with Ethiopia's status as a land of startling contrasts, Bale Mountain National Park is a land of rugged mountains, cloud-dampened alpine forest, and the country's largest concentration of large mammals.
Isolated far from the regular tourist attractions, Bale Mountains National Park rewards those who are willing to make the effort to get there.
The Mountain Nyala and Semien Fox are endemic to the park, while larger game such as kudu and bushbucks also roam the highlands.
While large predators such as leopards and lions are an uncommon sight, the Serval Cat and Semien Fox are common sights out on the prowl.
Bird-watchers and hikers are sure to find something to capture their imagination in the park as well.
Known for its lush forests and high concentration of mammals, Bale Mountains National Park is the perfect destination for hikers, wildlife watchers, and nature enthusiasts.
Here you can find gorges, lakes, streams, waterfalls, volcanic ridges and stunning views.
These mountains are another important biodiversity hotspot, supporting evergreen forests, giant bamboo, moorlands, and juniper sheltered river valleys. Wildlife here include the Mountain Nyala, Ethiopian wolf, warthogs, and serval cats.
