Ethiopian Bird Watching Tours 24 Days

Ethiopian Bird Watching Tours 24 Days

The highland escarpments form the most typical of Ethiopian habitats for birds and offer a number of species not found elsewhere in sub – Saharan Africa, like the Golden Eagle, Red-Billed Chough, and Ruddy Shelduck; other endemics include Rouget’s Rail and the Spot-breasted Lapwing. More than 50 species of birds inhabit the Simien Mountains National Park, including the impressive Bearded Vulture, or Lammergeyer, with its 10-foot (3m) wingspan. Bale Mountains National Park in the highlands is another popular birdwatchers’ paradise. The south of the country also affords superb birding opportunities with sought-after endemics like Prince Ruspoli’s Turaco, Degodi Larks, and Stresemann’s Bush Crow. October to December is the best month to come and have a look at various species of birds.
