Ethiopia with A&KEthiopia is fascinating, awe-inspiring, compelling: a land rich in cultural treasures and dramatic landscapes. But to get the most from this extraordinary East African nation, to understand its rich history and enjoy unique access to its hospitable, hugely diverse people, you need an experienced operator - and that means A&K.
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.
