Ethiopia Wildlife Holidays
Our wildlife holidays, wildlife tours and safaris of Ethiopia are listed below:
Ethiopia is a hotbed of endemism, culture and spectacular scenery. With a vast history from (very possibly) the earliest home of man, to Prester John, the Queen of Sheba and Emperor Haile Selassie, the country is fascinating from a purely human perspective. But the real wealth of Ethiopia is found in its many unique ecosystems and high percentage of endemic species.
Ethiopia is home to some of Africa’s most spectacular scenery and an amazing diversity of birds and mammals. Royle Safaris has a range of wildlife holidays and wildlife tours and safaris which showcase the very best of Ethiopia’s wildlife destinations, as well as some of Ethiopia’s landmark sights such as the Blue Nile Falls, source of the Blue Nile, and castles of Gondar.
So when choosing one of Royle Safaris wildlife safaris to Ethiopia you will travel into the incredible Simien Mountains, and explore the rugged domain of the charismatic Gelada Baboon and rare endemic Walia Ibex. You will also visit Awash National Park, a classic East African game reserve populated by herds of antelope, bustards and raptors as well as the Great Rift Valley, where Lake Awassa provides an idyllic setting for yet more exciting birdwatching and mammal viewing.
But no wildlife trip to Ethiopia is complete without visiting the Bale Mountains which are home to the most iconic of the Endemic mammals of Ethiopia; the wonderful and elegant Ethiopian Wolf.
Our Ethiopian wildlife watching tours focus on many of the rare and endemic species or both birds and mammals. Mammals such as Beisa Oryx and Eastern Black-and-White Colobus, as well as endemics including Swayne’s Hartebeeste, Mountain Nyala, Menelik’s Bushbuck, Gelada Baboon, Giant Molerat and the endangered Ethiopian Wolf are all commonly found here.
Join one of our wildlife tours to Ethiopia and combine the wonderful wildlife watching with history and unique Ethiopian culture.
