Nechisar National Park

Yenew
Day 2 Ethiopia has a total of 11 national parks. Nechisar National Park is where your experience of the Savanna begins. Gazelles, Zebras and Crocodiles are a common sight here. The National Park also houses a number of endangered and endemic species. Some 70 species of mammals and 350 species of birds are found here. Africa is known for its wildlife and Nechisar gives you a peek into it. The name Nechisar means white grass, and is derived from the Nechisar Plain which lies within the park boundary to the East of the lakes. The spectacular "Bridge Of God" also lies here, which is essentially an isthmus between Lake Abaya and Lake Chamo. In the park you will see the endemic Swayne Hartebeest, Burchell Zebras, Lesser and Greater Kudus, Grant and Thomson Gazelles and birds like the Abyssinian Ground Hornbill, Kori Bustard, Secretary bird and Lesser Kestrel.
