Ethiopia is a country unlike any other in Africa. Located in the Horn of Africa, and sporting a proud and ancient culture that has developed over millennia, Ethiopia simultaneously boasts a varied landscape that is home to numerous endemic mammals and birds, thus making it a photographers dream. Much of its appeal stems from its tapestry of highland areas – handsome Ethiopian Wolves stalk across the high-altitude plateaux of the Bale Massif in search of their rodent prey, vast troops of intriguingly vocal Geladas graze short-grass meadows in the breath-taking Simien Mountains, and wizened priests draped in layered robes lean on their worn prayer staffs in Lalibela’s famous rock-hewn churches. Appropriately termed the “Roof of Africa”, this is a high altitude wonderland that charms all who visit!
