Many of the pictures we see of Ethiopia depict starving children and crippling droughts, but choosing to explore this destination on one of our tours will enable you to see a more joyful side of this culturally rich country.
Whilst other parts of Africa are great for those who want to see spectacular wildlife, Ethiopia will appeal to travellers interested in religious history and hiking through beautiful landscapes. Churches, monasteries and castles litter the areas around Lake Tana and Lalibela, whilst city tours in Addis Ababa and Gondar will give you the opportunity to mingle with the locals. A visit to the interesting National Museum will allow you to see the remains of the oldest hominid ever discovered.
Traverse the Simien Mountains on a trek that highlights a side of Ethiopia rarely shown in the media. This beautiful range features contrasting peaks and valleys that are home to remote villages, as well as baboons, ibex and wolves.
