We have just added Ethiopia to our list of tours for 2020: 

15th Nov - 2nd Dec 2020

Ethiopia is a classic destination you just have to visit. As well as magnificent scenery including the spectacular Bale mountains, we take you on an unforgettable African adventure from Debre Libanos, Ankober and Debre Birhan all the way to the south of the country and Yabello. And everywhere in between! This is a stunning birding location and birds are everywhere. This is one of the 'birdiest' destinations you will ever have been to and we are excited to have Matt Eade leading this very special tour for us.
