Nearly every region in Ethiopia can boast of hundreds of bird species, making it the second most desirable country for birdwatching after South Africa. Indeed, Ethiopia’s diverse range of habitats offers the serious birdwatcher numerous opportunities to experience the exclusive presence of species found nowhere else on Earth. Within hours, one can visit forests, grasslands, arid plateaus, and mountain highlands and be rewarded with the avian diversity that Ethiopia sustains.
Certain destinations, such as the Bale Mountains and Yabello, may provide the greatest concentrations of birds, but dedicated birders may select remote and largely unexplored areas to seek out rare or undiscovered species. There is much for everyone to see, and Ethiopia is known for inspiring new converts to this interest.
Tours catering to special interests of birders may be organized by geography or species or by any other category you can imagine.
