Baro River

Baro riverThe Baro River area, accessible by land or air through the western Ethiopian town of Gambella, remains a place of adventure and challenge. Traveling across the endless undulating plains of high Sudanese grass, visitors can enjoy a sense of achievement in just finding their way. this is Ethiopia’s true tropical zone and here are found all the elements of the African safaris, enhanced by a distinctly Ethiopian flavour.
Nile perch weighing 100 kilos can be caught in the waters of the baro, snatched from the jaws of the huge crocodiles that thrive along the riverbank. the white eared kob also haunts the Baro, along with other river-bank residents that include the nile lechwe, buffalo, giraffe, tiang, waterbuck, roan antelope, zebra, bush-buck, Abyssinian reedbuck, wart hog, hartebeest, lion, elephant and hippopotamus.
