Ethiopia 16/11/12

Today was the long drive from Goba to Negele. It had rained all night and continued all through the morning, forming some magnificent flash floods in several villages. The first part of the drive was through a very large forest,  but soon habitat changed to sparse woodland then to acacia by the end of the day. For this reason, a huge array of species were seen, despite spending most of the time in the 4x4.
