The Babille Elephant sanctuary, which is located south of the town of Babille. The sanctuary is 6,982 square kilometers (4,329 square miles), and it sits at an altitude of 1,000-1788 meters (3,280-5,865 feet). The sanctuary consists of semi-arid, open woodland and contains an unknown number of mammals, including black-maned lion, kudu, and wild ass. It was created for the protection of the endemic subspecies of the elephant, Loxodonta africana orleansi, which are a rare sight due to the fact that, aside from being small in number, they are shy and rarely expose themselves in the open. Babille is also home to the hot thermal springs, used to supply much of eastern Ethiopia with bottled mineral water.
