Bird Watching Ethiopia: Discover the Endemics in their Refuges
Ethiopia is one of the most fascinating African countries for bird watching, with new and exciting discoveries being made every year, and is surely also one of the most enjoyable, with its wonderful light, diverse habitats, amazing scenery, and very rich and often colorful avifauna. This special tour combines most of Ethiopia’s endemics and near endemics with wonderful scenery, diversity of habitats, and some beautiful lodging.
Accompanied by one of our experienced SimienEcoTours Bird Watching Guides (English, Italian, French & German available) you will discover Ethiopia’s habitats from the low Rift Valley savannas in Awash, Senkelle Wildlife Sanctuary, and Abijata-Shalla Nationalpark to the high afro-alpine territories of the Bale Mountains National Park and the Ankober Highlands. An incredible variation of the diversity of birds will come to your sights during this tour.
Our guide will not only make it an exclusive birding experience but also brings you to some of the places where Ethiopia’s rarest species such as Prince Ruspoli’s Turaco, Ankober Serin, Rouget’s Rail, or Spot-breasted Lapwing can be found. Overnights are spent in wisely selected and mainly beautifully located lodges in nature settings where birding begins already on your doorstep.
