Evergreen cloud forests, towering mountains, steep valleys, thriving wetlands and gently rolling plains – Kafa Biosphere Reserve promises visitors a memorable and inspiring experience. One of the first UNESCO biosphere reserves in Ethiopia, it boasts an extraordinary variety of plants and animals. Kafa is also the cradle of Arabica coffee, one of the finest coffees in the world. Indeed, around 5,000 varieties of wild coffee grow in the shade of the mighty trees in this unique environment. The rainforest – Ethiopia‘s green lung – and its riches have shaped the lives of the local population in the past and continue to do so in the present. Finding out about their culture, knowledge and skills is a journey of discovery for all the senses.
