Nechisar National Park is in southwest Ethiopia. Its varied terrain spans escarpments, swamps and forest. Zebras and gazelles roam the vast savannahs of the Nechisar Plains. The large, brown-red Lake Abaya sits on the north side of the mountainous "Bridge of God" isthmus. To the south is Lake Chamo, known for its big Nile crocodiles. The park is home to many birds, including the rare Nechisar nightjar.
