Discover what makes Ethiopia one of Africa’s most enthralling destinations
What is it that inspires so many of our clients to make a return holiday to Ethiopia? Perhaps it’s the evocative islands dotted with wooden monasteries of Bahir Dar that rest in Lake Tana, the source of the Blue Nile. Maybe it’s the incredible rock-hewn churches and labyrinthine passages of Lalibela, or the imposing Portuguese-style castles of Gondar. From the intricate ecosystems of the Simien Mountains, weaving together baboon, ibex, wolf and vulture, to the equally complex tribal customs of the Omo Valley, Ethiopia never fails to fascinate. And did we mention that at the UNESCO-listed city of Axum, a church is believed to house the Ark of the Covenant...
Here in one of the Great Rift Valley countries you will find traces of the earliest-recorded human endeavours, a fascinating religious history influenced by Christianity, Judaism and Islam, and some of the finest coffee on the planet.
Running through all of the different Ethiopian holidays that we arrange is a sense of never-ending discovery. You can tailor your holiday to Ethiopia to match your interests, but the diversity of experiences on offer is astounding and, as our returning clients will attest, also inexhaustible. Your personal guide will help really bring to life what you see, and to help make your Ethiopian holiday a colourful tapestry of landscapes, people, wildlife and culture.
