We explore the high altitude Bale Mountains, home of the critically endangered Ethiopian Wolf; dry Awash National Park, a mecca for game and bird watching, Rift Valley lakes teeming with waterbirds and conclude our travels with a spectacular trek through the lofty heights of the Simien Mountains, with its impressive aggregations of Gelada Baboons. Our southern extension takes us to the remote Omo Valley where we interact with primitive and highly adorned animistic tribes. The spectacular scenery, fascinating history, diverse cultures and astonishing wildlife make Ethiopia a truly superb destination.
