Mago National Park

Covering an area of 2,162 square kilometers on the banks of Omo River, the Mago National Park is relatively undeveloped for tourists. The broad grasslands teem with herds of Buffalo, Giraffe, Elephant and Kudu, while sometimes it is possible to find Lion, Leopard and Burchell's Zebra.


The park rises in the north to mount Mago (2,528 meters) and is home to 56 species of mammals. Mago National Park is mainly grass savannah, with some forested areas around the rivers. Very dense bush makes difficult for game viewing.
The Birds are typical of the dry grassland habitat, featuring bustards, hornbills, weavers, and starlings. Kingfishers and herons can be seen around the Neri River, which provides an alternative habitat.
