Karo Tribe❤👍 The Lower Omo Valley in southern Ethiopia is home to over a dozen different tribes, who have lived there for centuries. Forming part of the estimated 200 000 indigenous peoples inhabiting the area are the Karo, who have a population of about 1000 to 2000, making them the smallest ethnic tribe in Ethiopia, probably in the continent as a whole. A deadly scourge of sleeping sickness is reported to have reduced their population at the end of the nineteenth century.
The Karo dwell along the banks of the Omo River (according to oral tradition, they settled at the Omo after following a red bull there almost two centuries ago) and largely rely on the river’s annual flood for sustenance – much like the ancient Egyptians who lived along the Nile thousands of years ago. The Karo predominantly practice flood retreat cultivation, growing sorghum, maize, and beans. They also fish and breed cattle and goats.
𝑴𝒐𝒖𝒏𝒕𝒂𝒊𝒏𝑵𝒚𝒂𝒍𝒂 (Tragelaphusbuxtoni),❤🦌 Endemic to the Ethiopian highlands east of the Rift Valley and discovered only in 1908, is much more like a greater kudu than another nyala in size, proportions, and social organization. Both sexes are gray-brown with faded stripes but have two conspicuous white throat patches, nose chevron, cheek spots, and underside of the bushy tail and a brown-and-white spinal crest. Coat length varies seasonally. Senior males are sepia-coloured, with open spiral horns up to 120 cm (47 inches) along the curve. Males, nearly as big as the greater kudu, stand up to 130 cm (51 inches) and weigh up to 300 kg (660 pounds); females weigh 150–200 kg (330–440 pounds).

Prince Ruspoli was a 19th century Italian aristocrat, naturalist and explorer. In the early 1890s he went on an expedition to Ethiopia, to collect new species for science, but unfortunately halfway through his visit he was trampled to death by an elephant. When his collecting bag arrived back in Italy, it contained a colourful, long-tailed bird about the size of a pheasant – clearly a new species of turaco. But because he had omitted to label the bird with the location where it had been shot, it was impossible to tell where in this vast country it was found.
The turaco – now posthumously bearing the name of its finder – remained a mystery for another half century. Then, in the 1940s, it was rediscovered in an area of scrubby woodland near the town of Negelle, in the far south of the country. Since then ornithologists have mapped its distribution: just three sites in the same region, making it one of the most restricted in range of all Ethiopia's 33 endemic birds.

2 Sommering's gazelle.
14.Red fronted gazelle.
Gazelle,are antelopes with slender, evenly developed limbs, level backs, and long necks. Most gazelles are tan-coloured, with white underparts and rump patch, a dark side stripe, and contrasting facial markings.
Most gazelles live in the hot, dry savannas and deserts of Africa & Asia . To stay hydrated in these grueling environments, gazelles shrink their heart and liver, according to a study published in the journal Physiological and Biochemical Zoology. Breathing can cause an animal to lose a lot of water. A smaller heart and liver need less oxygen, so the animal can breathe less and lose less water.
𝐆𝐞𝐫𝐞𝐧𝐮𝐤 also called Waller’s gazelle, the longest-necked member of the gazelle tribe (Antilopini, family Bovidae), a browsing antelope of the lowland arid thornbush of the Horn of Africa.

Although a zebra has a unique pattern of stripes as each person has his/her own individual fingerprints, it is possible to distinguish between the two southern African species at a glance. (The third zebra species, the larger and more mule-like Grévy’s zebra, inhabits the semi-arid grasslands of Ethiopia and northern Kenya.) Burchell’s or plains zebra and mountain zebra have more than their environments to separate them.
In the northern highlands of Ethiopia stand 11 churches that the Ethiopian Orthodox Church says were built by angels.
Come n visit for Christmas annual celebrations is awesome right here. 💯❤🔝💒
💯❤🐒 Gelada Baboon(Theropithecus gelada)
Endemic to Ethiopia.
Explore the high mountain home of Ethiopia’s gelada monkey. Discover why these cliff dwellers band together in troops.
Gelada monkeys live only in the high mountain meadows of Ethiopia—an environment very unlike those of their forest- or savanna-dwelling primate relatives. This high-altitude homeland is replete with steep, rocky cliffs. With their short and stumpy fingers, geladas are adept rock climbers. At night, the animals drop over precipice edges to sleep huddled together on ledges.
These baboon-size animals are the world's most terrestrial primates—except for humans. As mostly grass-eaters, they are the last surviving species of ancient grazing primates that were once numerous. Geladas spend most of their day sitting down, plucking and munching on grasses and herbs. They have fatty sitting pads on their rear ends, which seem well adapted to this activity.
The Dassanetch are originally nomadic pastoralists . However, despite their dedication to cattle rearing current reality reveals that crop cultivation on the flooded banks of the Omo river and its delta are fundamental to their subsistence.They use canoes boat to cross the river to border of Kenya.
Omoratte market of the Dassanetch has been serving for centuries as an important trading center of the Karo and the Geleb where the Karo head with their own clay pots to exchange them for grain, Coffee and ammunition.
In the Dassanetch society power is in the hands of a group of about thirty elders called"bulls" (Ara).
The hair style of the Dassanetch men is one of the most sophisticated . ❤💯👌🇪🇹☘

"Ethiopia# is the Birth Place of #Coffee " Coffee comes from aplace found in Ethiopia called Kaffa#
In the Ethiopian highlands, where the legend of Kaldi, the goatherd, originated, coffee trees grow today as they have for centuries. Though we will never know with certainty, there probably is some truth to the Kaldi legend.
It is said that he discovered coffee after noticing that his goats, upon eating berries from a certain tree, became so spirited that they did not want to sleep at night.
Kaldi dutifully reported his findings to the abbot of the local monastery who made a drink with the berries and discovered that it kept him alert for the long hours of evening prayer. Soon the abbot had shared his discovery with the other monks at the monastery, and ever so slowly knowledge of the energizing effects of the berries began to spread. As word moved east and coffee reached the Arabian peninsula, it began a journey which would spread its reputation across the globe.
