Abiata-Shala National Park is located 290 km south of Addis Ababa at an altitude between 1540-2075 meters. The park is not interesting at all to do a safari but we were able to spot a few antelopes, warthogs and ostriches. The Lakes Lake Abiata and the small but beautiful Lake Chitu are much more interesting. Blue green alga provide food for more than 10 000 flamingos throughout the year. We stayed in the '10,000 flamingos lodge' which overlooks the small Lake Chitu.
