The Bale Massif


Predominantly populated by Oromos, Bale appears to lie at the heart of the original homeland of these people. Here the land rises to 3,300m where it is covered by a beautiful juniper belt. When we go up further, the terrain would transform into typical Afro-alpine with sparse vegetation dominated by the occasional giant lobelia.  Tulu Deemtu, the second highest peak in Ethiopia, is the climax. Here visitors can see the endemic Ethiopian wolf, Canis simensis, which lives nowhere else in the world. It has just seven populations in Ethiopia and numbers only about 500 individuals in total.
