Abijata shalla lakes National ParkAbijata Shalla Lakes National Parks situated in the Great Rift Valley, only 200 kilometers (124 miles) south of Addis Ababa, and in the Lake Langano recreational areas, the Abijata Shalla lakes national Park attracts numerous visitors.

It was created primarily for its aquatic bird life, particularly those that feed and breed on lakes Abijata and Shalla in Large numbers. The park compresses the two lakes, the isthmus between them and a thin strip of land along the shorelines of each. While attention is focused on the water birds, the land area does contain a reasonable amount of other wildlife.
