Gelada Mountain Monkey
Often incorrectly referred to as the Gelada baboon, this species is only found in the highlands of Ethiopia and in particular the Simien Mountains. They live in family groups of between 4 and 9 and the dominant male of each family might reign from between one day to three years. This means that the males are often fighting which can provide captivating images
Ethiopian Wolf
The Ethiopian wolf is now only found in four or five places in Ethiopia. The easiest place to see them is in the Bale Mountains but in the Simiens too, they can be seen on a daily basis by using a guide who knows where to look. In 2016, half the wolf in the Bale park were decimated by canine distemper disease. In the Simiens there are just 75 wolf left.
Incredibly leopards are found in many places in Ethiopia. They are highly elusive and are poached by the ever growing population.
Menelik’s Bushbuck
Menelik’s Bushbuck is an isolated and highly distinctive race of the Bushbuck that occurs in the highlands of Ethiopia. It is a shy and elusive forest antelope and males are very darkly coloured compared with other races.
Mountain Nyala
Mountain Nyala are an antelope found in high altitude woodland in Central Ethiopia, typically in the 3000 to 3500 meter range. They are endemic to the Ethiopian highlands. Four or five nyala might congregate briefly but usually they forage individually in the woodland.
Often known as the bone-breaker, this ‘old-world vulture’ is the only vulture of the lineage Gyapetus. The lammergayer is the last vulture to feed from a carcass and is dependant on the digestion the bones of the animal that contain the marrow. Up to 70% of everything that the lammergayer is bone. It carries them to a height over rocks before dropping them to make them into smaller pieces before swallowing them.
Pelicans are found on Lake Tana in the north of Ethiopia. They are the larges of the family of Pelecandae and characterised by a long beak with large pouch to catch the fish. They hint collectively and live colonially. They are often found around the boats of fishermen on the lake.
Lion (Black Maned)
Ethiopia has a particular species of lion known as the black-maned lion, which differs from those found on the plains of the countries further to the south. They were feared extinct until very recently when 50 were discovered. An even more recent event in 2016 has brought to light some 2000 nocturnal lions living on the Ethiopian side of the Dinder national park.
Ethiopia has some of the largest crocodile in the world. The Nile crocodile, which is found in huge numbers along the banks of the Nile and the Tekaze are some of the most ferocious in the world.
Dik Dik
The dik-dik is the smallest of all the antelope family and is found in the southern and eastern parts of the country where the ground is arid. Awash National park is accessible and a good place to see them.

Ethiopian Adventures run a wide variety of conservation activities but one of our most popular is the Conservation Classes for Children which is unique. We run these programs twice a year when we close our lodge (Simien Lodge) and the children become our guests for the weekend. By working with communities, Ethiopian Adventures ensure that the end of the national park is kept clean and children are not invasive for clients.
