On the horn of Africa and divided by the Great Rift Valley, Ethiopia is a country endowed with great natural beauty. The landscapes are many and varied ranging from Savannah grasslands to rugged mountainous areas with great peaks and cliffs. The Rift Valley into which the peaks fall is scattered with large sparkling lakes.
A wide variety of wildlife roams the forests and the grasslands. The Gelada monkey, the Walia ibex and the Ethiopian wolf are found nowhere else on earth. Ethiopia is one of the top birding destinations in Africa.
