About Menagesha Suba Forest

The oldest conservation area in East Africa, Menagesha Suba Forest has been protected by imperial decree since the mid 15th Century. At 2500 ha, it represents the largest remaining patch of indigenous forest in the Addis Ababa area, and as such is an excellent spot for walking, birding and wildlife spotting.

  • Climb Damocha Peak (3385m)
  • See forest mammals such as guereza monkeys and the endemic Menelik’s Bushbuck
  • Look for endemic species including Ethiopian oriole, yellow-fronted parrot, black-winged lovebird, banded barbet, Abyssinian woodpecker and Abyssinian catbird

Just 40km from Addis Ababa, Menagesha Suba Forest offers a breath of fresh air and a very contrasting landscape.

    It is a great place to shop not too far from New York. We took the bus from Port Authority and traveled through the countryside to get there.
