It all starts with a night in the royal city of Gondar, a place of impressive castles and churches that’s cloaked in mystery and intrigue. Then, it’s off to the Simien Mountains and as you snake through the impressive highlands you’ll catch your first glimpse of the endangered gelada baboons, giant bearded eagles and elusive walia ibex. After a night in Addis, you continue on to the Bale Mountains National Park in search of the charismatic Ethiopian wolf, Menelik's bushbuck and giant mole rats.
