Menagesha suba Park – 15th century Park (3385meters above sea level)

The Menagesh Suba Park is known as the oldest and probably the first park in Africa. The 15th century emperor Zera Yacob planted its first trees, and the forest’s rich biodiversity-leopard, giant African forest hog, yellow fronted parrot and giant juniper trees-is a living testimony to the foresight of Ethiopia’s “first conservationist.” It is situated some 35kms away from west of Addis Ababa and it is densely wooded with some 400 years old trees. It is also a sanctuary for several endemic birds and animals such as the Abyssinian Catbird and the Menilik Bush Buck.
