Ethiopia is a country for those seeking the journey of a lifetime. It will surprise and delight you with its extraordinary ancient past and indulge you with its culture, hospitality, food, music, landscape and wildlife.
Axum, Lalibela, Bahir Dar, Gonder (Gondar) and Harer (Harar) – each of these Ethiopian towns has a history unlike any other. They offer castles and churches, monasteries and mosques, carvings and frescoes.
With nine UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Ethiopia is one of Africa’s most exciting destinations for cultural and adventure tours. So, immerse yourself in history, witness a spectacular religious festival, trek at the height of soaring raptors, and walk across the hills from one rural village to another. We have designed an adventure to suit you based on our understanding of your interests and expectations.
December is one of the best months to visit Ethiopia; the sun is warm with a clear blue sky, it’s harvest time and colourful religious festivals are happening in the remote monasteries of the rural areas. We have designed this tour to incorporate the best of everything Ethiopia has to offer.
