My name is Ayuba Ahmed and I was born in Bale Dinsho, in the heart of the Bale Mountains and I am the founder of Bale Mountains Eco Tours, Ethiopia. I am an Ethiopia native and was born in the small town of Dinsho,in the heart of the Bale mountains national park, after I finish my colleague Bale Robe I have been working us a guide in Bale mountains and the Ethiopia Wolfe conservation program for like 9 year as a wolf monitor and l ater working with Frankfurt zoological society, as a para - ecologist helping research and students study vegetation, small mammals, and the hydrology of theregion. For the last 9 years I am founder of Bale mountains Eco Tours Ethiopia.
After sometime, I sought out and successfully received a diploma in ‘Tourism Management’ from Madawelabu University in Bale Robe, Ethiopia. Afterwards, I again started work as a freelance guide who specialized in Bale but traveled extensively throughout Ethiopia especially for those who were interested in bird watching, wildlife viewing and cultural excursions. In addition, I have guided journalists and film crews throughout Ethiopia, some of which you can see at www.goingwild.org.
I have dedicated myself to this work and improving the services I provide. I have successfully completed numerous guide training programs provided by the Frankfurt Zoological Society and I’m always learning from my experiences with clients. Recently, I have decided to start this tour company as a continuation of improving the quality of tourism services that I provide and those provided in Bale.
Although I specialize in tour guiding throughout Bale, my work has taken me throughout Ethiopia and I have become familiar with all the popular tourist destinations that the country has to offer. I am also knowledgeable with Ethiopian history, numerous Ethiopian cultures and Ethiopia’s natural history. I am fluent in Amharic, Afan Oromo and English. My services have come highly recommended and have been featured in the pages of Lonely Planet©, Brandt©, Trip Advisor©, Voyage Forum and the Bale Mountains National Park website.
