Birdwatching in Eritrea
Birdwatching Contacts in Eritrea
From the Authors
"I am by trade a teacher trainer, English language teacher and ELT author. I spent two years living and working in Eritrea for the Ministry of Education training teachers in the Adi Keih Sub Zoba, supported by VSO (Volunteer Services Overseas) from 2007-2009 and had a fantastic time there. I am also an amateur, albeit very dedicated, birdwatcher, with a passion for creating websites as well. I originally began this website to spread the word about Eritrea's wonderful birdwatching, in the hope of bringing more tourists to a country full of wonderful people who could benefit from the development of the tourist industry here. As the project grew, I enlisted the help of Solomon and Dawit who have enabled the website to grow to what it is now, through contributing their knowledge, experience and photos, to make it an Eritrean website. If you are planning a birding trip to Eritrea, feel free to drop me an email and I'll help in any way I can. Good birding!"

"I am one of
Eritrea's most experienced naturalists. I love all animals and have also
studied primates and reptiles in Eritrea. I am an experienced
guide; during my work as guide and field assistant for several
international scientific and tourist projects, I was able to locate
several interesting sites to watch bird and other wildlife.
Additionally, I have an extensive collection of bird photos. I
have several years of experience in organizing and guiding trips within
the country and I am looking forward to welcoming interested people to
show them the interesting diversity of Eritrean landscape, wildlife and
the Abyssinian endemic birds, which contribute to an understanding of
Eritrea's austere beauty. If you have any questions about the
birds and wild animals of Eritrea, drop me an
