Ethiopia Birding Tours

Ethiopia’s many highlights include one of the highest endemic bird counts on the African continent, a remarkable mammalian assemblage, an ancient Christian culture and remote tribes little influenced by the modern world. This combination of unique features makes for a thoroughly enjoyable and fascinating journey to one of the world’s most exceptional countries. Rockjumper’s comprehensive Ethiopian Endemics Birding tour loops through central and southern Ethiopia as we seek out the very best birding that this nation has to offer, including targeting every possible endemic and near-endemic bird on this route. Participants on this Ethiopia birding tour can expect to see over 500 Ethiopian bird species, including the fabled Ruspoli’s Turaco, strange Stresemann’s Bush Crow, Rouget’s Rail, Spot-breasted Lapwing, remarkable Thick-billed Raven, the extremely localized Salvadori’s Seedeater, rare Red-billed Pytilia and even Ethiopian Wolf! Our Lalibela Historical Extension explores the astounding series of 12th century monolithic churches hewn out of solid rock. The Omo Valley Extension is a cultural and birding experience that will take us to one of the wildest and most ethnically diverse places on Earth – the South Omo Valley, home to more than fifty distinct tribes, each with their own language, clothing, hairstyles and body ornamentation. Our Ethiopia birding tour takes us through the very heart of this vast and varied cultural melting pot, and promises to make an exciting and memorable end to our Ethiopia birding experience!Ethiopian birds Ethiopian birds

 

Our new Ethiopia Budget Birding tour offers a wide array of Ethiopian bird species and nearly all of this ancient country’s endemics in a convenient 13-day package. To boot, you’ll be exposed to the kaleidoscope of cultures that grace this ancient land, and all of these factors combine to ensure a fascinating experience of not just Ethiopian birds, but also its amazing mammals, including troops of the incredible Gelada!

 

For our new Ethiopia Highlights tour, we have hand-picked the prime birding destinations in central Ethiopia and chosen only premier lodges. This Ethiopia birding tour offers brilliant birding and wildlife viewing for those with less time to spare in the field and a penchant for more upmarket accommodations. This Ethiopia birding tour can be linked with both Lalibela Historical Extension II and also our Northern Extension – Simiens & Gondar tour. This latter extension explores the ancient city of Gondar, famed for its spectacular and unique medieval castles, and the awe-inspiring Simien Mountains National Park, which holds the only population of the magnificent Walia Ibex as well as a bounty of birds and huge troops of gentle Geladas, to name just some of the highlights.

 

ORYX’s Endemic Mammals & Ethnic Diversity photographic safari concentrates on some of the world’s most spectacular and photogenic animals, including the Ethiopian Wolf, Mountain Nyala, Gelada and Walia Ibex. We will also spend time photographing the “Camelot of Africa” – the famous castles of Gondar, as well as the incredible rock-hewn churches of Lalibela. Our Vanishing Cultures of Omo Valley Extension allows us opportunity to photograph several tribal communities including the famous plate-lipped Mursi tribe and colorfully adorned Hamar tribe.

What our clients say about tours to Ethiopia

  • I wanted to say what a fantastic trip we had! The tour was well organised, we didn’t have to change accommodation every day, the vehicles and drivers were excellent (after one of them was replaced) and we saw a great variety of habitats. Markus and Rich were absolutely wonderful, and very patient with everyone in the group. We were a diverse group in terms of age/energy levels, experience travelling in developing countries, and birding skills and knowledge. Yet Markus and Rich worked hard to get everyone on to as many birds and mammals as possible, and catered for everyone’s needs extremely well. They are both extremely professional, yet also a lot of fun and we had some truly hilarious moments, especially on our night drives. How do you choose between looking at an Aardwolf and an Aardvark when they are both in view at the same time? And who could forget Markus’s dying calf imitation to lure in Spotted Hyenas? I must say the impressive mammal list was quite unexpected. Ethiopia is truly an amazing destination – and certainly rivals birding in Southern Africa.

    I look forward to travelling with Rockjumper in the future and have been singing your praises to birders here in Canberra.

  • Wayne and Markus are both fantastic guides and the trip was spectacular!!  I would definitely travel with Rockjumper again in the future and look forward to the possibility of doing so!

  • Glen Valentine is an asset to any birding group with his excellent knowledge of birds and his friendly outgoing personality. He is helpful to both experienced and inexperienced birders alike. I would not hesitate to join another birding tour where he was leader or co-leader as I know from experience that it would be a thoroughly enjoyable and informative tour.
