11. Babile Elephant Sanctuary
Only about 1,000 elephants remain in Ethiopia, and by far the largest and most visible herd lives in the Babile Elephant Sanctuary. A short drive from Harar, Babile is also home to gazelles, lions, leopards, cheetahs, and tons of exotic birds.
The landscape morphs from rocky outcrops to lovely tree dotted landscapes. Roughly 400 elephants live here and you’ll really love the walking safaris that run each day.
