"Ethiopia has been dubbed the “Cradle of Humanity” and the “Roof of Africa”, but these epithets remain inadequate to describe its richness as a unique biological and cultural crossroads. This is undoubtedly one of Africa’s finest birding destinations. It boasts a healthy combination of lush and impressive forests, breathtaking highlands, moist and arid savannas, and wonderful wetlands. There are many endemics, and a rich assemblage of Palearctic and intra-African migrants, and trips here rack up impressive species lists. First-time visitors to Ethiopia are struck by the sheer number of birds and their tame natures, living right alongside people. Although Ethiopia lacks most of the big mammals for which Africa is famous, it still boasts and impressive cast of furry creatures. These include the fascinating “bleeding-heart”, or Gelada Baboon and the critically endangered Ethiopian Wolf.
