Gambella National Park Getaways

Thanks to the rare species not found elsewhere in the country, Gambella National Park is really worth a visit. Located in the Gambela Region on the river Baro, the park was established primarily to protect two species of endangered wetland antelopes: the White-eared kob and the Nile Lechwe.

Gambella Travel Guide

The small town of Gambella is an oddity among Ethiopian towns, and a most appealing one. Lying at an altitude of 450m in the swampy, mosquito-ridden lowlands, Gambella exudes an atmosphere of tropical languor, dictated as much by its lush vegetation and almost unbearable humidity as by its remoteness from just about everywhere. Historically, ethnically and scenically, Gambella is barely a part of Ethiopia at all.
