The Tourist Attractions of Nazret:
The Awash National Park is to the north-east of Nazret, and it should take less than 2 hours to get there by car. The area is made up of scrub trees and open grassland, as well as the Awash River gorge and river basin. You will see several sets of lovely waterfalls along the river gorge to the south part of the park. Aside from the scenery, you can expect to see plenty of wildlife too. Herds of antelope, gazelle, oryx and kudus are very common in most parts of the park and there are some big troops of baboons around as well. Around the river areas, you can see hippos, crocodiles and the occasional cheetah. There are some accommodations within the park for overnight stays, also around the river to the south of the park.
Aledeghi Wildlife Reserve

Abidjatta-Shalla National Park
