Two- and half-day trip in the natural and wild environment of the park where the Gibe river runs.
The Gibe park is located 200 km on the western side of Addis Ababa, on the road to Jimma. It is a territory that encloses the Gibe river, one of the biggest tributaries of the Omo river. It is a wild area where many endemic birds live, especially aquatic ones. But there are also hippos, crocodiles, antelopes, and other mammals. It is a weekend of African adventure.
