Ethiopia is a vast country, situated in north-eastern Africa, the so called Horn of Africa, to which it also belongs along with neighbouring Eritrea and Somalia.
It is predominantly a mountainous country and a green one too as it receives a lot of rain.
Ethiopia has an amazing 850 bird species of which at least are 30 endemic (some are shared with its neighbor Eritrea).
Moreover, the birds seem to be everywhere, wherever you turn your eyes there are birds nearby and often in good numbers. They are also quite approachable as they are not persecuted and hunted here by the local people.
There is a good diversity of mammals (279 species) and other wildlife and we will be looking for them too.
The main one is the unique Ethiopian Wolf - endangered and endemic, but also the Mountain Nyala, Menelik’s Bushbuck and many more.
Our tour will coincide with the bird migration period so besides seeing nearly four hundred bird species many of them in considerable numbers too.
We will be visiting various habitats in order to record all this variety - the remote and beautiful Bale Mountains, the Rift Valley, few wetlands and big lakes, one of the few remaining forests and the Blue Nile tributaries.
