👍👍 Such a beautiful park full of wonder and nature! Great place for selfies and pictures and exercise. Lots of hills and elevation help this place feel memorable and set apart from other parks. We enjoyed the Lion area, the Museum as well as all the gems along the way. Must visit when in Addis Ababa.
