Ethiopia Explored

Small Group Holiday



days from


Ethiopia is home to one of the oldest Christian cultures in the world - witness the rock-hewn churches of Lalibela, the churches of Tigray province and the monasteries of Lake Tana. In addition, Axum was once one of the foremost civilizations of the ancient world, while Gondar has castles rivaling those of medieval Europe. Then there are the stunning Simien Mountains and the Blue Nile Falls. This is a tour for people who want to travel to a country in Africa which despite its rapid development still feels like you are stepping back into history.
