Guassa Community Trekking Ethiopia

Trekking tour in Mehal Meda

Tour Price : $150-270 Duration : 2 days Languages: English, France Discount: 10%

Truly off the beaten track, the 98-sq-km Guassa Plateau has one of the smallest but best protected Afro-alpine habitats in Ethiopia. In fact, it’s been a locally managed natural resource management area since the 17th century. The most notable wildlife are the three dozen Ethiopian wolf (best seen 6am to 7am and 4pm to 7pm) and the many gelada monkeys. There are also some leopards, spotted hyenas, servals, klipspringers and honey badgers. The locally common Auger buzzard (one of many raptors) and endangered Ankober serin are two of 114 bird species.

The area is managed through a common property resource system by the communities living adjacent to the Guassa Area. This indigenous management system has been traced back to the 17th century and is one of the oldest conservation management systems in Sub-Saharan Africa. At present, Guassa user communities live in ninekebeles (farmers’ associations) adjacent to Guassa Community Conservation Area. The area is managed by Guassa Conservation Council which has kebele and woreda level components and consist of both community and local government representatives.
