Wildlife of Ethiopia
Look for Ethiopian wolves and enjoy spectacular wildlife in Ethiopia's less visited South.
Ethiopia’s wildlife credentials are surprising. The country’s varied ecosystems are home to 277 species of mammals and over 800 species of birds. Wildlife populations may not be as large as in neighbouring Kenya but the country’s endemic species and the lack of tourists make this trip a rewarding experience. On some departures we follow an alternative itinerary with three days hiking in the Bale Mountains to get closer to the Ethiopian wolves.
