As safaris to Ethiopia have become more and more popular over the past few years we have been asked on numerous occasions about the wildlife and in particular the Birdlife. Well, let me just say that over a recent short visit to the Northern Historical area I was blown away by the number of birds that I was able to see.
The country 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.
Birding in Ethiopia is fantastic in the following areas, The Highlands, The Rift Valley, Lake Tana and in particular the Southern areas of the country.
All photographs have been taken by us here at Uyaphi.com with the sole purpose of showcasing birding from a 6-day safari that we have just completed.
