Ethiopia is a safe place to see many birds’ species that are hard to see anywhere else owing to the difficulty of access to neighboring countries. A fascinating endemic flora and fauna, besides birds, is found throughout the country: birding trips will be enhanced by Gelada baboons, Ethiopian Wolves and Giant Lobelias.  Birders on a two –to three week visit can confidently expect to see 300-500 bird species including up to 37 endemics and near-endemics.
