The Ethiopian part of the Great Rift Valley cuts through Southern Ethiopia, creating a savannah landscape similar to what most people have in mind when they picture East Africa, but very different from most of Ethiopia. All along this valley are lakes (from north to south: Ziway, Langano, Abijatta, Shalla, Awasa, Abaya, Chamo) and national parks with wildlife.
Gamo-Gofa-Dawro is spoken in parts of Southern Ethiopia.
