This bridge on the north end of Hawassa is supposed to be a good place to find hippos.


Africa: Egypt and Ethiopia

1/11/2011: We headed north from Yabello with the intention to visit Wondo Genet. Asaminew, our driver, mentioned a birding spot next to a bridge in Hawassa, and we had missed that spot on our first visit. The spot consisted mostly of Spur-winged geese, but it is also supposed to be good for hippos at night.
