Towering mediaeval castles and unspoilt landscapes. Mountains called ‘the roof of Africa’. The ancient home of the Queen of Sheba. A diverse culture with over 45 ethnic groups. Is Ethiopia the travel world’s best ‘secret’ destination?
We use the words ‘explore’ and ‘discover’ quite often enough in the travel industry. But with Ethiopia the invitation to set out on a voyage of discovery is practically irresistible. Arrange your trip and travel Ethiopia with us!
A tailor-made holiday to travel Ethiopia takes you beyond the heightened comfort of luxury hotels and into a world that is entrancing in a different way. For the full effect our Ethiopian expert, Chloe Henderson, recommends you drive across country rather than fly, and treat yourself to some of the most spectacular scenery imaginable.
The astonishing Simien Mountains, for example, are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Their admiration comes from the beauty of their jagged ridges, conical tops and heart-stopping precipices.
Journeying further; Bahar Dar offers the Blue Nile and Lake Tana. Addis Ababa teems with life, culture and diverse people. Gondar is the Camelot of Africa. Harrar is a magical, Islamic walled city. Churches stand out of the living rock at Lalibela; the place – according to Chloe – to join in the amazing Timkat religious fesitival, which the locals celebrate in every January.
