Ethiopia Photo Gallery
Having visited Ethiopia and having explored quite a few areas with camera in hand, it is here on these gallery pages that we showcase a few of our favourite photographs. We feature images of birdlife, religious artworks, Ethiopian people and of course scenery imagery.
Ethiopia is one of the destinations where one does not need to be particularly talented with a composition of an image, it is literally point, focus and shoot and one has a great photo.
Please also note that all photographs were shot on either a Pentax DSLR or our trusty Samsung Note5's.
Photographs Of Ethiopia
People of EthiopiaEthiopia offers up some of the most beautiful and photogenic people I have ever had the pleasure meeting. Needless to say, the people of Ethiopia are more than often fine with being photographed although it is always polite to ask first and a small tip is not always a bad thing. Your guide will advise you on what and what not to do.
Ethiopia Religious ArtWhen visiting the churches in and around the Lalibela region (one of many religious regions within Ethiopia), one cannot help but marvel at these paintings, textiles, basketry and jewellery. Without question, it is one of the highlights of any Ethiopian safari.
Ethiopia Scenery PhotographsEthiopia is one amazingly stunning country with vistas left, right and centre with Ethiopians being immensely proud of their country and are always will to show it off. This is a gallery of images that we thought visitors to Uyaphi.com might find interesting, enjoy.
Ethiopia Bird PhotographsEthiopia offers up 800 species of which 29 are endemic, compare that number with South Africa 700 species, Botswana 500 species and Tanzania with over 1000 species and one starts to understand that Ethiopia is up there with the best in Africa when it comes to birding.
Palace Of Haile SelassieHaile Selassie, King of Kings, Lion of Judah, by the grace of God, Emperor of Ethiopia. Quite a mouthful of a title for a single man or, as the Rastafarians would have it, the son of God. So awe-inspiring are the adjectives that you would have expected him to live in a magnificent palace made of the finest Carrara marble or a granite stone castle in the tradition of Gondar.
Visiting The Lalibela Rock ChurchesYour correspondent has been travelling in Africa for over three decades. I feel that I know sub-Saharan Africa; its smells, its peoples, its geography and its wildlife. Ethiopia is different, as different as snow is to sand. So different that you could get a very sharp knife and detach it somewhere in the Red Sea because it is not similar to any of its Arab world neighbours either.
Where To Travel In EthiopiaNew on Uyaphi.com is our Travel in Ethiopia portfolio featuring safaris and tours to this somewhat new African safari destination; we are very excited about Ethiopia and all that she has to offer. Think of Ethiopia as a more cultural safari destination than what one is used to in Africa.
