Ethiopia: Travellers' Handbook

Trevor Jenner

This is a travel guide that was conceived for the discerning traveller, the group and package tourist, and those people wishing to have a quick reference travel guide with a range of facts at their fingertips. In full colour this book provides a clear understanding of what there is to see and do in Ethiopia. The background and reference information conveys a wide-ranging view and it has been designed to be uncomplicated and straightforward to use, without having to constantly refer to abbreviations and symbols. It is a travel guide with a user-friendly presentation that allows quick reference to topics of interest. The many map illustrations have been designed to be straightforward, clear and easy to follow. The book is packed with information and colour images used as illustrations.

Next to comprehensively covering all of the places of interest, it also covers the wildlife. Throughout the book there are well-presented panels of information on national parks to inform the reader of the access, habitat, birds and animals likely to be seen, with many of the species illustrated. There are also colour-coded panels describing the birds likely to be seen en-route, in habitat areas and in remote parts of the country.

The book also contains a well thought out chapter on the fauna of Ethiopia including: birds, mammals, amphibians, reptiles, butterflies, other insects and wildlife parks. Spectacular and colourful birds are described for the passing traveller together with the endemic and regional endemics that are of interest to the serious birder. There is a considerable amount of information woven into the text to help travellers identify the larger mammals and interesting sub-species.

In full colour, this luxuriously illustrated book is the only guide to describe all of the national parks of Ethiopia and contains much original information. It has been written by Trevor Jenner, who regularly lead birding and wildlife tours during two decades of travel to Ethiopia. Prominent organisations and people have contributed articles illustrating their exciting and heart-warming involvement with Ethiopia that are intended to further inform the traveller. The book contains completely independent travel advice. 442 pages.
