Mother Nature: Memorable Wildlife Encounters In Ethiopia


There is nothing like standing still and blown away by what Mother Nature has to offer. And there is nothing better than capturing these wonderful moments of grace so you can still move by it over and over again and I love that I am able to share that moment with the world.

Mum and Baby duck floating smoothly upon Lake Hawassa – one of the beautiful Ethiopia’s Rift Valley Lakes. Besides being one of the sparkling gems of the Lake, this particular panorama provides the inexpressible intelligence of the universe through mothers.


Still following the theme of Mother’s love, here comes another beautiful scene that usually could be spotted at one of the interesting national parks of Ethiopia and that is the Netch Sar National Park situated in the Southern part of the country.

Since Burchell’s Zebras are one of the main attractions of the park, the wonderful moments of grace varies from seeing beautiful Burhcell’s Zebras standing, mingling with Grant’s gazelles to galloping along with the endless sweep of golden white grass which makes it even better but for me nothing beats seeing Mum and baby Zebra so lovingly together.


Last but not least, Mum and baby monkey at the top of beautiful trees of  Hawassa –one of the tranquil and affectionate cities of the Southern Ethiopia.

Since the dense scrub and fig woodland of Hawassa are hosts of Guereza and grivet moneys, being entertained or sometimes being annoyed by the curious and restless monkeys while lounging along the lakeside even provide that wonderful moments of grace in which one can still discover and feel unexpectedly the unfathomable of Mother’s Love.


Now it is that time of year when parts of the world celebrate MOTHERS and which really actuates me to create this particular photo essay and pay a tribute to all the mothers.


Happy Mother’s Day!
