Ethiopia

Ethiopia is a mystical country, split by the Great Rift Valley, and to the West it’s highlands containing a fabulous history. It has retained much of its cultural identity and its story is one of Africa’s most fascinating. The country boasts a large number of historical and cultural sites and a fabulous endemic range of wildlife. If you have traveled in sub-Saharan Africa a visit to Ethiopia is another world altogether.

A Cultural Journey

The jaw dropping scenery of the Simien Mountain and Bale Mountain National Parks are home to the country’s endemic mammals i.e. Gelada baboon, Walia ibex, Menelik’s bushbuck, Mountain nyala, Swayne’s hartebeest and the Ethiopian wolf.

The country’s long cultural history infused by the Ethiopian Orthodox religion has resulted in numerous spectacular churches throughout the country. One can venture to the tiny remote churches hidden in cliff faces in the beautiful Gheralta Mountains through to the giant UNESCO listed ones carved from solid rock in Lalibela.

The lowlands of the Danakil depression the spectacular Erta Ale volcano, incredible sculpture formations and across the desert salt caravans are an iconic sight. Given the blazing temperatures these are the rewards for the hardiest travelers.

The music and rich cuisine add another layer of intrigue as you explore this hidden wonderland.

What our Clients say

Karen

I am thrilled with all my photos and put the best ones into photo books. I now enjoy showing these to my friends who are all envious of the fantastic holiday I had! Thank you for being such an excellent guide. Of all the wonderful scenery, birds, mammals and plants I saw, the shots of the African sunset still bring a tear of joy to my eyes. I never expected to get that! I think the whole holiday exceeded my expectations even the amazing thunderstorms that we experienced. I hope to return again one day!

Kate & Richard

We are back home in a rather damp dark England and wishing we were back in Kenyan sunshine. We just want to say a big "Thank you" to you and your team for such a marvelous trip. Everything was perfect from the moment Kenneth picked us up until we said "goodbye to Peter at the airport. The arrangements you made, the camps, the weather, and the animals we saw could not have been bettered. Thank you very much for all the trouble you took for us. We really hope it will not be our last visit!

Millie
