Arba Minch

< Go back

Bordered by the lush mountains of the Great Rift Valley and home to two of Ethiopia’s largest Rift Valley lakes, Arba Minch is a lovely stop on the southern circuit. The university town is known for its abundance of tropical fruits, excellent fish market and for being the gateway to Nechisar National Park. The park spans the narrow and mountainous stretch of land (referred to as “the Bridge of God”) that separates Lake Chamo in the south from lake Abaya in the north. The park is ranked as one of the most scenic in East Africa, notable for its diverse terrestrial habitats ranging from open savannah and acacia woodland to thick bush and shoreline forests.
