Covering an area of 2200 km2 Bale Mountains National Park
is the largest remaining alpine habitat on the African continent. Founded
in 1970, the Park contains the biggest continuous area of Afro-alpine
vegetation (~1000 km2, circa 17.5% of all Afro-alpine vegetation) and
a large proportion of moist tropical forest.
Birds such as the Thick-billed Raven, Wattled Ibis, Blue-winged Goose, Rouget's Rail, etc. can easily be seen in the Park. Bale is the southern-most breeding population of Golden Eagles, Wattled Cranes and has a large breeding population of Bearded Vultures. The wetlands and forests of Bale are the source of major rivers which provide a significant proportion of the perennial water supply to approximately 10 million people in South-eastern Ethiopia and Somalia.
