The Bale Mountains were formed by volcanic activities, and the area consists of six volcanic cones that are all more than 4,000 meters high a.m.sl. Erosion by ice, water and wind has created the fascinating geological formations. The park is rich in wildlife such as African gold wolves, spotted hyenas, black-maned lions, olive baboons, Colobus and bale monkeys, Menelik’s Bushbuck,honey badgers, warthogs, Mountain Nyala. These are some of the amazing species that can be seen in what is one of Ethiopia’s greatest wildlife destinations. Bale Park is the best place in Ethiopia to spot the majestic and mysterious Ethiopian Wolf, which is an endangered species due to the expansion of agriculture in the country, with less than 390 surviving in the wild. It is the world's rarest canidae. The wolf is endemic to Ethiopia, so found nowhere else in the world.
