Ethiopia, 17 days
Ethiopia is one of the most diverse countries in Africa with regards to culture, geography, nature and wildlife. Our tour takes us to 3 national parks and several wildlife reserves. We explore the Rift Valley lakes, the Afro-Alpine Highlands, savannahs, lush forests and deserts in search of endemic and regional endemic birds, mammals and other wildlife.
We visit Geffersa Reservoir and Jemmu Gorge around Addis for many exciting birds among them Wattled Ibis and Rüppell's Chat. We continue to Lake Langano and stop at various wetlands and Lake Ziway on the way. We explore the Abiyata-Shalla National Park to see thousands of flamingos and Wondo Genet National Forest for Yellow-fronted Parrot and other endemics. We spend 2 days in the Bale Mountains National Park visiting the Sanetti Plateau in quest of Spot-breasted Plover and Rouget's Rail and Harenna Forest. We drive south visiting Genale River in search of Ruspoli's Turaco and spend some time on the Liben Plain in search of Sidamo and Gillett's Lark. We spend a day in Yabello Wildlife Sanctuary to see Stresemann's Bush-Crow and White-tailed Swallow. Then we drive north exploring Lake Awassa and Awash National Park. On the way back to Addis if time permits we visit Fantele Crater to see Boran Cisticola among others.
