    ETHIOPIA Hunting Information

    [​IMG]Hunting Ethiopia
    Ethiopia covers a large portion of the Horn of Africa and shares borders with Sudan, Kenya, Somalia and Djibouti. For decades Ethiopia has been a legendary hunting destination, especially famous for its Elephants. It is also the only country in which one can find the Moutain Nyala as well as hunt the iconic Bongo or Markhor which are as beautiful and exciting as they are challenging.

    Despite numerous political crisis and wars waged in the last twenty years, Ethiopia, unlike its neighbor Somalia, offers unique hunting possibilities in exciting and fascinating geographical regions.

    Ethiopia has been celebrated by such famous writers as Raimbaud, Henry de Montfreid and Fran霈殃s Guyot and it is useful to read the works of these authors before beginning a journey to this country. Even though these books have been written decades ago, they enable today's hunter to more fully experience the atmosphere of this beautiful country.

    In addition to the magnificent Mountain Nyala (Tragelaphus Buxtoni), Ethiopia is home to a varied wildlife spread out over different regions in the country that include the following, the Greater Kudu (Tragelaphus Strepsiceros), Lesser Kudu (Tragelaphus Imberbis), Beisa Oryx (Oryx Gazella Beisa), Nile Buffalo (Syncerus Caffer Aequinoxialis), Neumann's Hartebeest (Alcelaphus Buselaphus Lelwel), Defassa Waterbuck (Kobus Defassa), Harnessed Bushbuck (Tragelaphus Scriptus), Gerenuk (Litocranius Walleri), Bohor Reedbuck (Redunca Redunca), Grant's Gazelle (Gazella Grantii), Soemmering's Gazelle (Gazella Soemmeringi), Oribi (Ourebia Ourebi), Klipspringer (Oreotragus Oreotragus), Kirk Dik-Dik (Madoqua Kirki), Gunther's Dik-Dik (Madoqua Guentheri Smithi), Giant Forest Hog (Hylochoerus Meinertzhagenii), Bushpig (Potamochoerus Porcus), Warthog (Phacochoerus Aethiopicus).

    Among the predators are the distinguished Black-Backed Jackal (Canis mesomelas), Side-Striped Jackal (Canis Adustus) and Spotted Hyena (Crocuta Crocuta). Lions and Leopards are also available to hunt in Ethiopia and are present in large numbers. Hunting Lion is only done by tracking. Ethiopia issues more licenses for hunting Leopards than any other country in Africa.

    Hunting in Ethiopia follows specific rules. A species can only be hunted in those areas that have been designated for hunting that particular species. Unfortunately for hunters interested in hunting Elephant or the Neumann's Hartebeest, these species can be hunted in theory only, no land has been designated for their hunting in Ethiopia as of yet.

    There is no hunting season in Ethiopia and therefore it is theoretically possible to hunt all year round. The best time of year for hunting Ethiopia is from October through June. The months of July, August and September can be particularly wet.

    The hunting areas in Ethiopia are spread out over a large portion of the country. The larger areas are mainly located in the southern half of the country and south of the capital, Addis Ababa. The Omo Valley, Bale province, Arusi mountains and Bale Mountains to the south as well as the Danakil region and the Afar region to the north are the most frequented hunting areas.

    The hunting areas in Ethiopia are open territories, not fenced. Hunting concessions are leased and managed by hunting outfitters. There are less than half a dozen hunting outfitters in Ethiopia and the professional hunters are mostly English speaking (American, South African or white Zimbabwean).

    Hunting in Ethiopia is done on foot except for the Mountain Nyala for which hunting is most often done on horseback. It should be known that Mountain Nyala hunting can be very physically demanding and is similar to hunting sheep or Bongo. It is often described as a "vertical" Bongo hunt due to the difficulty negotiating the terrain. While hunting Mountain Nyala, flying camps are often the standard. Elsewhere in Ethiopia the hunting camps are tent camps and are usually large and quite comfortable.

    The hunting areas are accessible only by road from Addis Ababa and the drive is on average 5 to 10 hours depending upon the location of the area you will be hunting and the road conditions.

    Finding a Hunting Outfitter in Ethiopia
    The single most important thing you need to do to ensure that you are booking with a good hunting outfitter is check their references. The outfitter should provide you with more than a few references, especially clients who have hunted with them within the last year and you should call many of them.

    To cut through the indecision and risk of booking on your own you may wish to consider using a hunting agent that specializes in hunting in Ethiopia as they should be familiar with the best areas for certain species, work with the most reliable hunting outfitters and may be able to get you a better deal. I recommend HuntingAgent.com as a company you can trust plus they will make it easier for you by taking care of all of the details. You can contact James Jeffrey at his Houston based office +1 (832) 306.1786 or by email at info@huntingagent.com. Click here to visit HuntingAgent.com website for more information.

    [​IMG]Climate in Ethiopia
    There are three main seasons in Ethiopia, with temperatures depending on the altitude. The lowlands are generally hot and humid, with cooler temperatures in the Ethiopian Highlands. The dry season runs from October to May and is the most pleasant time to visit, while June to September is the rainy season.

    There are three main seasons in Ethiopia, with temperatures depending on the altitude. The lowlands are generally hot and humid, with cooler temperatures in the Ethiopian Highlands. The dry season runs from October to May and is the most pleasant time to visit, while June to September is the rainy season.

    Ethiopian climate varies according to the different topographical regions. The central plateau has a moderate climate with minimal seasonal temperature variation. The mean minimum during the coldest season is 6DC (43DF), while the mean maximum rarely exceeds 26DC (79DF). Temperature variations in the lowlands are much greater, and the heat in the desert and Red Sea coastal areas is extreme, with occasional highs of 60DC (140DF). Heavy rainfall occurs in most of the country during June, July, and August. The High Plateau also experiences a second, though much milder, rainy season between December and February. Average annual precipitation on the central plateau is roughly 122 cm (48 in). The northern provinces receive less rainfall, and the average annual precipitation in the Ogaden is less than 10 cm (4 in). The westernmost region of Ethiopia receives an annual rainfall of nearly 200 cm (80 in). Severe droughts affected the country in 1982?4,1987?8, and 1991.

    [​IMG]Ethiopia Hunting Season & When Hunting is Allowed
    - Hunting Season - January 1st to December 31st (all year round)
    - Trophy hunting is allowed throughout the year with the one exception of the Nile Crocodile that is restricted to be hunted only from May 1st to November 30th as they lay their eggs the rest of the year.
    - Trophy hunting may take place within the hours of daylight during the hunting season.
    - Hunting is allowed at night with artificial light but only for nocturnal species such as Lion, Leopard, Hyena, Jackals and smaller cat species such as Serval and Genet. The Giant Forest Hog does is not classified under nocturnal species and therefore cannot be hunted at night.
    - The Ethiopian government strictly controls the minimum number of days for a hunting safari based upon the species being hunted. Above and beyond the government regulations, the hunting outfitter may also impose their own guidelines as to the minimum number of days required to hunt certain species or combination of species.
    - A 21 day hunting safari is the minimum number of days required to be able to hunt Mountain Nyala or dangerous game.
    - A 15 day hunting safari is the minimum number of days required to be able to hunt any other species available on a hunting license.
    - A maximum of one trophy per species may be harvested, per hunting client per hunting permit with the exception of Warthogs, Bushpigs and Baboons while on a Leopard or Lion hunt as these animals may be used as bait.
    - Hunting of female is prohibited. Should such animal be taken, the professional hunter will be fined double the license fee, however the trophy can still be exported.
    - Based on the SCI record book minimum scoring system the minimum legal trophy size is to be reached. Should an animal be taken under the minimum score, the professional hunter will be fined a 25% penalty fee on the license fee, however the trophy can still be exported.
    - All animals are subject to quota availability.
    - Baiting with domestic animals is not permitted.
    - Hunting with dog(s) is not permitted.
    - Bowhunting is permitted.

    Ethiopia defines two categories of land where hunting is permitted; controlled hunting concessions which will give the sole hunting right to one outfitter and open hunting areas which will give the hunting right to the outfitters who financially contribute to the area and share the allocated quota.

    You will find information about the bird hunting season in Ethiopia near the bottom of this page.

    [​IMG]Species to Hunt in Ethiopia
    Ethiopia offers a good selection of species for trophy hunting, including the famous Mountain Nyala, probably the most revered spiral horned antelope. Ethiopia also offers a large variety of species, however it is not because a species is available through a hunting license that this species is available on quota anywhere in the country.

    [​IMG]Bowhunting in Ethiopia
    Bowhunting in Ethiopia started in 2005 and the government of Ethiopia does not have any restrictions on species hunted with a bow. This country offers tremendous opportunities for bow hunters however few operators have the experience to conduct bowhunting safaris, so careful selection of the hunting outfitter is very important.

    Ethiopia does not have an additional bow qualification for professional hunters.

    [​IMG]Importation of Bows & Arrows into Ethiopia
    It is legal for hunters to import bows for bowhunting purposes into Ethiopia and no import permit is required.

    [​IMG]Minimum Equipment Requirements for Bowhunting in Ethiopia
    Ethiopia does not have any minimum equipment requirements for bowhunting so common sense will apply or here below find the requirements for South Africa.
    - Big Game
    Bow Kinetic Energy 80 ft/lbs
    Arrow Weight 700 grain
    (Elephant, Rhino, Hippo, Buffalo)
    - Medium Game

    Arrow Weight 550 grain
    (Kudu, Eland, Oryx / Gemsbok, Hartebeest, Wildebeest, Zebra, Giraffe, Sable Antelope, Roan Antelope, Waterbuck, Tsessebe, etc.)
    - Small Game
    Bow Kinetic Energy 40 ft/lbs
    Arrow Weight 400 grain
    (Warthog, Nyala, Springbok, Impala, Blesbok, Duiker, Steenbok, Ostrich, Caracal, Black-Backed Jackal, Game Birds, etc.)

    [​IMG]Minimum Equipment Requirements for Rifle Hunting in Ethiopia
    - There is no minimum equipment requirement for rifle hunting in Ethiopia.
    - Ethiopia does not require a minimum energy (Eo - muzzle velocity) for calibers used.

    [​IMG]Traveling with Firearms & Ammunition
    Traveling to Africa usually requires taking at least a couple of different airlines as well as departing from several countries whose laws and regulations are constantly changing. And they all have their own rules, regulations and laws for which it is your responsibility to be aware and in compliance with all of them. For this reason you should read the Africa Hunting article on Laws & Regulations for Hunters Traveling with Weapons by clicking here.

    [​IMG]Permits & Importation of Firearms & Ammunition into Ethiopia
    The following section contains the basic information you will need to know, for more detailed information you should read Africa Hunting article on Importation or Transiting Procedures Through Countries with Weapons by clicking here, especially if you are transiting through or traveling to another country.

    - Temporary importation of firearms and ammunition into Ethiopia is NOT free of charge, please check with your outfitter as to the current charges. The process is usually quick and easy.

    - Your hunting outfitter will send you a form to fill out and return to them so they can arrange for your firearms and ammunition temporary import/export permits months prior to your arrival as required by the government of Ethiopia. This permit will be based upon the firearm information you provide to your outfitter so it is very important that you carefully consider which firearms you will be bringing with you, as once you have submitted the form you will not be able to change your mind. It is very important that all weapons serial numbers be exactly the same when you arrive as what was issued on your import/export permit. Last minute changes of mind cause more problems regarding gun permits than any other reason. Exact number of ammunition is also important.

    - A hunting license can only be purchased from the Wildlife Department once the necessary temporary importation of firearms and ammunition permit(s) has been issued by the Ministry of Internal Security in Ethiopia.

    - In the event the hunting client chooses to use a firearm(s) from the hunting outfitter, required firearms and ammunition permit(s) has still to be applied for by the hunting outfitter and issued by the Ministry of Internal Security in Ethiopia before a hunting license can be purchased from the Wildlife Department.

    - There is a limit of three firearms per hunter that may be imported into Ethiopia for trophy hunting purposes.

    - A maximum of one hundred and twenty (120) rounds of ammunition may be imported per hunting rifle and two hundred (200) shells of ammunition per shotgun, however you may encounter greater restrictions from the airline(s) you are traveling on or country you are departing from or other countries you may be visiting or transiting through. For more information on this topic, read the Africa Hunting article, Laws & Regulations for Hunters Traveling with Weapons by clicking here.

    - Only ammunition for the specific caliber(s) you are bringing may be imported.

    - No automatic, semi-automatic firearms are allowed. Semi-automatic shotguns are allowed.

    - No weapons which fall under military categories.

    - Handguns are allowed for hunting purposes. A special permit which the safari operator must apply for well prior to the start of the hunt can be requested. This special handgun permit comes at a cost.

    [​IMG]Ethiopia Professional Hunters Association
    There is no Professional Hunters Association in Ethiopia.

    [​IMG]Ethiopia Hunting Permits & Licenses
    The wildlife authorities and the government of Ethiopia allocates quotas by species to each controlled hunting concessions and open hunting areas on an individual basis.

    Your hunting license and permit will be applied for and obtained by your hunting outfitter well prior to your arrival, please check with your outfitter as to the current charges or if the cost of this paperwork is already included in the price of your hunt.

    The following is required regarding permits for trophy hunting in Ethiopia:
    - A maximum of one trophy per species may be harvested, per hunting client per hunting license, with the exception of Warthogs, Bushpigs and Baboons while on a Leopard or Lion hunt as these animals may be used as bait.
    - Clients are only permitted to hunt animals for which a license is issued.
    - Hunting licenses cannot be transfered or refunded and they have to be paid prior the commencement of the hunt.
    - All animals are subject to quota availability.
    - Permits must be issued prior to the hunt commencing.
    - A separate permit must be issued for each individual hunting client.
    - While hunting on an open hunting areas a 10% surcharge on license fee will be payable.
    - License fee for killing or wounding of female, young and/or immature animals is double the standard license fee for that species.
    - License fee for killing or wounding of trophies that do not reach the minimum score is fined a 25% penalty fee on the license fee for that species.
    - Clients are expected to abide by all Wildlife Hunting Regulations in Ethiopia.

    CITIES Permits & U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service

    The importation of some individual sport hunted trophies requires a CITES permit (i.e. African Elephant, White Rhinoceros and Leopard to name a few), you will need to submit an application to the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service if you are planning to import any of the species on their list. You can download the CITIES permit application forms by clicking here. CITES stands for Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora, visit their web site at www.cites.org.

    [​IMG]How to Get There
    A majority of international hunting clients will fly from their country of origin into Ethiopia on a major international airline via Paris which offers direct flights to Bole International Airport in Addis Ababa.

    [​IMG]
    Travel Agent Specializing in Hunting Clientele
    You may wish to consider using a travel agent that specializes in hunting worldwide or in Africa as they may be familiar with these routes and used to working with these airlines. Specialty travel agents can often get better deals than you can find on major websites or through regular travel agents. I highly recommend Travel Express, hunting travel specialists, they are the company that I personally use. Lori Ginn can help you, she is very knowledgeable and a hunter herself. She can assist you with all aspects of your hunting travel planning from airfare, lodging and car rentals to entry visa's, firearm permits, etc...

    [​IMG]Traveler's Health & ImmunizationsA valid yellow fever inoculation certificate or International Health Certificate including yellow fever proof of vaccination is required upon arrival from all countries to enter Ethiopia.

    CDC recommends that you see a health-care provider who specializes in Travel Medicine. Find a travel medicine clinic near you by clicking here. If you have a medical condition, you should also share your travel plans with any doctors you are currently seeing for other medical reasons.

    Recommended Vaccinations Include:
    - Hepatitis A
    - Hepatitis B
    - Typhoid
    - Meningococcal Meningitis
    - Rabies

    ETHIOPIA Species to Hunt

    These species may be available on the hunting license in the country; however they may not be available on quota anywhere in the country. Also individual hunting outfitters may or may not be given any quota or have any remaining licenses left for some species.

    Some of these species may not be able to be imported back into your country of residence. You can find information on the importation of sport hunted trophies at the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service at Permits or the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) at www.cites.org.

    Malaria Maps
    Malaria prophylactics medication is recommended for visitors to some parts of Africa, ask your hunting outfitter and we suggest that you visit the Center for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) for their recommendations for travel to your specific destination as mosquitoes in some African countries are resistant to certain antimalarial drugs.


    Distribution Model
    [​IMG]
    Background: This map is a theoretical model based on available long-term climate data. It has a resolution of about 5x5 km. Although it is reasonably accurate, it is not based on actual malaria data and may not reflect the real malaria status. It shows the theoretical suitability of local climatic, and therefore the potential distribution of stable malaria transmission in the average year. Please note that climatic conditions, and therefore malaria transmission, vary substantially from one year to the next. Malaria control activities can also dramatically alter the malaria transmission situation.
    Meaning: Where climate is "suitable" (red = 1), malaria is likely endemic (hypo-, meso-, hyper- or holoendemic). "Suitable" areas may have little or no malaria because of malaria control. Where climate is "unsuitable" (white = 0), malaria is likely epidemic or absent. Some "unsuitable" areas may actually have endemic malaria because of the presence of surface water in an area where there is little or no rain. In the marginally suitable areas (0.1 - 0.9) transmission may occur at steady but low levels (eg eastern Africa), or in strongly seasonal cycles with great inter-annual variation (eg western & southern Africa).

    Endemic / Epidemic Risk Areas
    [​IMG]
    Background: The malaria distribution model has been re-classified into endemic and epidemic areas. These risk areas have then been used to calculate the number of people living in endemic and epidemic conditions. In Southern Africa (Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe and South Africa) "endemic" encompasses regions where the climate is 50-100% suitable, whereas in the rest of Africa "endemic" refers to regions where climate is 20-100% suitable. Different cut-offs were used, because in southern Africa malaria is at the limit of its distribution and has been largely reduced through malaria control. Otherwise, all comments on the malaria distribution model apply to this map also.
    Meaning: Endemic areas are defined as "areas with significant annual transmission, be it seasonal or perennial". Epidemic areas are defined as "areas prone to distinct inter-annual variation, in some years with no transmission taking place at all". Since this is a theoretical model, areas defined as "endemic" may be "epidemic" in reality, or v.v.

    Duration of Malaria Transmission Season

    Background: These maps are also theoretical models based on available long-term climate data. They have a resolution of about 5x5 km. Although they are reasonably accurate, they are not based on actual malaria data and may not reflect the real malaria status. They are based on the theoretical suitability of local climatic, and therefore the potential duration, onset and end of the malaria transmission season, in the average year. Please note that climatic conditions, and therefore malaria transmission, vary substantially from one year to the next. Malaria control activities can also dramatically alter the malaria transmission situation. More work is ongoing to refine these models.
    Meaning: In the Months of Risk model, malaria transmission is strongly seasonal to epidemic (yellow = 1-3 months), seasonal and endemic (light green = 4-6 months) or perennial and endemic (dark green = 7-12 months). Some areas shown as "No transmission" (white) may actually have endemic malaria because of the presence of surface water in an area where there is little or no rain.

    Duration of Malaria Transmission Season
    [​IMG]
    Background: Based on the seasonality model, these maps simply reflect the first and last month of the average transmission season. All comments on the seasonality model apply to these maps too.
    Meaning: The colors indicate the month in which the transmission season starts and ends, in the average year. In a few areas there are two transmission season, so that there are two start and two end of season maps.
