Description

Ethiopia: Birding the Roof of Africa

(Introduction) One of Africa’s finest birding destinations due to its geography and diverse landscape and vegetation, Ethiopia offers a prolific mix of endemic and migratory birds second to none. Moreover, because there is no tradition of hunting or persecuting birds, they are remarkably tame. This tour will cover a wide variety of habitats, guaranteeing the observation of a list of species long enough and novel enough to delight any birder. Please see the full itinerary for more information on the birds to be seen.

Day 1: 

You will be met at the airport by our representative and transferred to your hotel. We shall then embark on a guided tour of Addis’s most important sights: the National Museum, which houses the 3 million-year-old Lucy, the Ethnographic Museum to gain an insight into the diversity of Ethiopian culture, the Mercato, Africa‘s biggest outdoor market, and Trinity Cathedral, resting place of the last emperor. The tour will finish with a short drive to view the city spread out below from Mt Entoto.
