                    Ethiopia, is set amongst lush green hills near Lakes
                    Abaya and Chamo. Arba Minch is named for the abundant
                    local springs that produce a groundwater forest; in
                    Amharic, ArbaMinch means "forty springs." The town
                    proper is divided into two distinct settlements; buses
                    and taxis connect Shecha (on higher ground) and
                    downtown Sikela. Shecha is the uptown administrative
                    centre. Just four kilometers away is Sikela and the
                    commercial, industrial, and downtown residential areas.
                    On the eastern side of Sikela lies the gate to Nechisar
                    National Park, which covers the isthmus between Lake
                    Abaya to the north and Lake Chamo to the south. The
                    park has not much to offer except small antelope, a few
                    monkeys and baboon and a variety of birds. The region is
                    known for crocodile (also known as the crocodile market
                    which is an area of abundant, large, wild crocodiles) and
                    hippo, fish farming, and O/n in Arbaminch.
