Senkelle National Park

Markos National Park Aug 17, 2021


Senkelle Swayne's Hartebeest Sanctuary is a protected area in the Oromia Region of Ethiopia, dedicated especially to the protection of the Swayne's Hartebeest. Covering 58 square kilometers, the reserve is located some 10 kilometers south of the Shashemene-Arba Minch road near the town of Aje. Although the sanctuary was set aside to protect the largest population of Swayne's Hartebeest in Ethiopia, a mammal endemic to the country, the original herd of 3,000 animals has dwindled to a few hundred due to poaching.
