Anbessa Bet or Lion Zoo


At the moment, Ethiopia only has one major zoo, a 1.2 hectare zoo located in the capital city Addis Ababa, in the Sidist kilo area.

Plans are underway to move this zoo to a larger 26 hectare site.

In the meantime, it is home to nineteen adult and four young lions, the gelada baboons, the Lesser Kudu, the Egyptian Geese, monkeys, rabbits, ducks and turtles.
