Tour Overview

Once a rich and powerful kingdom in northeast Africa, Ethiopia lays claim to a history that stretches back thousands of years and our 13-day adventure through the diverse landscapes and unique cultures of this magical land begins at its geographical centre and in its capital city, Addis Ababa. From here, we travel past cascading waterfalls and through outstanding panoramic mountain sceneries -- including visits to the continent's fourth largest peak at Ras Dashen and to the foothills of the Simien range -- admire grand palaces, ancient monuments, majestic castles and the intricate religious paintings, artwork and architecture in rock-hewn churches dating from the 11th century, and learn about the lifestyles of locals by spending time in villages where fisherman still use papyrus boats. Some of our tour departures coincide with Ethiopia's festivals, giving us the opportunity to witness special traditional celebrations in which tens of thousands of Ethiopians congregate in elaborate dress and sing and dance into the night.
