EXPLORE CHRISTIAN ETHIOPIA
As an ancient Christian kingdom, the land that we know today as Ethiopia is full of temples, churches, and monasteries.
The age-old Christianity of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church is integral to life in Ethiopia, and here, the faithful attend mass regularly and observe more than 180 fasting days in a year. This devotion – combined with the fact that many of the rituals are practiced as they would have been over a thousand years ago – make the celebration of Ethiopian religious festivals very special to witness, particularly in ancient towns such as Axum, Lalibela, and Gonder.
We arrange small expert-led tour groups to experience all the subtleties of Timket (Epiphany), Lidet (Christmas), Meskel (the Finding of the True Cross) and Fasika (Easter). Make one of these tours the sole focus of your travels, or weave them into your tailored Ethiopian experience.
