Bemnet Gizachew


Born in Addis Ababa, Bemnet Gizachew is the northern Ethiopia Director for Wild Expeditions, private mobile tented camp that operates throughout Ethiopia.

Spurred on by a passion for travel – developed as a youngster, when he used to accompany his father on business trips – Bemnet left his job working for a high-end events company to pursue his first love, and is today known throughout the industry for his knowledge, particularly of birds and of the history of Ethiopia.

Extremely experienced and well-respected, Bemnet has hosted and guided guests from many different backgrounds and nationalities, old and young, and is equally adept at answering the needs of the first-time traveller as he is those of the seasoned specialist.
