Zebras and other animals can be seen near by, while seeing lion while on foot didn't seem to be a great idea for us. Not ideal for kids and old people, as the safari has no vehicles and you'll need to walk. Need good shoes...More

We visited with two local guides the Chamo lake and the Nech Sar parc. We saw many crocodiles of 6-7 m long - very impressive! Some hippos and a lot of birds on the Chamo lake. We walked inside the parc NechSar and saw some...More

I didn't really see a lot of animals. Surprising how many local people drive their cattle onto the park.

The park is beautiful and full of zebras and monkeys! When we went it was dry season so there was not as much greenery, but still very pretty.

It’s a long boatride to the other side of the lake. Then you have to walk uphill maybe 20 minutes. And then you see some Zebras - in different groups. Altogether maybe 25.
