Ethiopia Bird Watching Holidays
Ethiopia’s greatly diversified ecosystem makes it one of the richest habitats in Africa for birds and mammals. With more than 860 species of birds, Ethiopia possesses about 10% of the world’s bird species, and about 40% of all African birds are found here. Among these, 16 species of birds are found only in Ethiopia. This is why Ethiopia is a must for bird enthusiasts.
In addition to the spectacular scenic mountain areas, many of Ethiopia’s highlands and Rift Valley lakes are safe havens for a large variety of birds. The northern part of the country — the Simien Mountains National Park, Lake Tana, Lalibela, and the Tigray area — offers a great variety of birds. And the Great Ethiopian Rift Valley area and the chain lakes of the Rift Valley — Zway, Langano, Abijata Shalla, Lake Chamo — are some of the most important birding sites in Ethiopia.
Further south, in the south western parts of the country, around the Omo River, Mago, and Omo National Park and most of the places all the way to the Kenyan boarder are amazing sites for bird watching. The Awash National Park and the Bale Mountains National Park in the eastern part of the country are also exciting places for birding and wildlife viewing with many endemic birds.
