September 2011

Wildlife photographs may be seen here or for general trip photographs please continue reading.

This journey was to the south of Ethiopia.  The visit concentrated on the tribes around the Omo National Park.  The most memorable part of the trip was the amount of rain we had and the effect this had on the trip.  The trip members were fortunately able to accept this 'little' problem and we came to accept getting stuck in the mud as all in a days march.  One day we managed to move camp about 200m within the park as the vehicles repeatedly became stuck.  And this was a holiday I hear you say!


Here are a collection of photos taken on the trip.  Mostly of wildlife I must say as I love to photograph the birds and animals on my trip.


The visit was arranged by Wild Frontiers and thanks must go to Mette and her team of supporters for which for me was a great adventure into a developing part of the world.
