We handpick top notch local and specialist guides, all with a passion to reveal Ethiopia's highlights. Add in the best 4WD vehicles - you'll thank us on more remote roads - and well-established contacts, and we can arrange seamless travel through this intoxicating country and its neighbours.

Take an Abercrombie & Kent luxury trip to Ethiopia and you'll discover that Christianity - its magnificent architecture and ancient rituals - are a crucial element of your trip. UNESCO listed Axum, the spiritual heart of the country since the 4th century, is believed to house the Ark of the Covenant, the holiest of relics. You won't see it, of course, but you will find copious ruins of tombs, churches and palaces.

More spectacular is Bahir Dar, where 20 of the 37 islands on Lake Tana - the source of the Blue Nile - host wooden monasteries, frescoed with Christian scenes. Then there are Gonda's 17th century churches and Portuguese-style castles, and, perhaps most famous of all, the amazing 12th century rock-hewn churches of Lalibela, carved down into the earth and connected by labyrinthine passages. Visit on Sundays to see the monks joined by a flood of white-clad worshippers.

But you're only just starting. The capital Addis Ababa has Africa's largest market, an excellent national museum and two cathedrals, not to mention several fine coffee shops, while in the south Omo Valley has twenty different tribes, including the Mursi, whose women some sport clay lip plates.

And then there are the epic landscapes, none more spectacular than the Simien Mountains. One of Africa's largest ranges with peaks reaching to 4,000m, they blend into an endless blue green ocean of rippling hills; home to baboons, ibex, wolves and vultures. They're all ingredients that help make Ethiopia a truly inviting dish - one that A&K is more than happy to serve.

Guest Testimonial
