3 Days Awash National Park Overview

The 3 Days Awash National Park largely consists of acacia and grassland as well as a variety of intriguing volcanic scenery. Zebra should be feeding alongside Beisa oryx and kudu in the open spaces and grass plains. The little dik-dik is frequently well hidden in the shade of the acacia thorn, along with olive and hamadryas baboons, Colobus, and grivet monkeys, near the river. Lions, jackals, and caracals are occasionally spotted, as are cats like cheetahs, servals, and leopards, though they are less common.
