Close to the Omo River, which flows into Lake Turkana, lies the vast Omo National Park in Ethiopia. Located in the southwestern part of Ethiopia, the park has a rich variety of wildlife, although very few people visit it. The Omo Valley is in fact nearly free from human habitation. Visitors have a chance to view animals like the eland, oryx, Burchells's Zebra, Lelwel hartebeest, buffalo, giraffe, elephant, waterbuck, kudu, lion, leopard and cheetah. The park is, however, known to be rich in paleoanthropological remains.
