Top Descriptions

While it’s not a big hitter in the East African scene, Nech Sar National Park does offer a wild and exciting safari experience in the Ethiopian south. You can expect to see prehistorically giant crocodiles here (they’re easier to spot than in other countries nearby) and a tonne of birdlife. Just come here more for the experience than wildlife, otherwise you might be somewhat disappointed.

Top Tips

The entrance ticket is valid for 24 hours, so try to use it with more than one activity to save on costs.
While wildlife is neither as abundant nor as diverse as it once was, Nech Sar makes a good entrance to the safaris of East Africa. For the already initiated, think hard about whether or not the cost is worth it to you.
The ‘God’s Bridge’ that separates Lake Abaya from Lake Chamo can be impassable after the rains, even in a 4×4. Consider taking a boat tour instead.
