Ethiopia is one of the most diverse countries in Africa with regards to culture, geography, nature and wildlife, the land of superlatives, extremities, where Simien Wolfs roam the mountains and Lammergeiers rule the skies. Dominated by the breathtaking highlands and filled with the richest historical heritage of the entire continent, Ethiopia is one of the most sought-after and enigmatic destinations in Africa. Ethiopia's 9 national parks and 4 wildlife sanctuaries are renowned for their diverse fauna and flora.
