Wildlife Holidays in Ethiopia

Ethiopia combines some of the world’s most spectacular scenery and a long and fascinating history, with outstanding wildlife.

Many people believe Ethiopia to be the earliest home to man. Historians have proclaimed it to be the legendary kingdom of Prester John, and suggest a dynasty originating in the country from Queen Sheba, concluding with the Emperor Haile Selassie in 1974.

It is a land of mixed race and mixed religion, of countless tribes and even more languages. It is filled with donkeys, cattle, and an elegant people ... plus the finest of Africa’s mountain scenery.
Ethiopia has been a melting pot since Christ for ideas from the East, West and Africa.

Ethiopian Wolves

Overall an excellent trip - more an adventure than a holiday.
(extract from her 2010 travel newsletter) For me one wolf encounter stands out from the rest. On sighting the wolf Andy suggested we get out of the bus and follow at a distance. After trailing it for a while the wolf stopped in one area where it started to listen for its underground rodent prey. Sitting down on a nearby rock, I quietly watched the wolf, which, although no doubt aware of our presence, continued its search for food unfazed by us, eventually digging out its rodent prey...To share such a moment with a wild animal is a privilege and was very special to me.

This was a huge trip which packed in a vast amount of sights and experiences. Hard to believe we did so much in less than three weeks. It seemed like we were there for three months! The guides worked really hard and delivered an itinerary that worked like clockwork even with our extra demands as we went. It was good not to be confined to the vehicle all day. Highlights were many, but seeing two male Wallia Ibex fighting and sitting near the edge of a cliff surrounding by hundreds of Gelada in the fading light were particularly special.
