Ethiopia is steeped in history, matched by the dramatic landscape of the Simien Mountains. One of the most moving experiences was seeing thousands of pilgrims walking up to Lalibela, all dressed in white.

The Allans

Our family safari over Christmas was incredible. We hiked in the Simien Mountains and the gelada baboon experience there was right up there with the gorilla treks we’ve done in Rwanda. I was blown away by the rock churches of Lalibela, it’s ridiculous to think they were carved out by hand. But of the whole trip, camping in a mobile safari camp in Danakil is probably the most extraordinary travel experience I’ve ever had. Otherworldly doesn’t come close. Thanks so much to Ra, Peter, Molly and the team, without their guidance and…encouragement…we would never have taken this trip on!

Why We Love Ethiopia

From

Ra

Diversity

Ethiopia has welcomed international visitors for years. There is a lot to explore from the hustle and bustle of vibrant Addis Ababa to the epic landscapes and wildlife of the Simien Mountains, the extraordinary rock-hewn churches of Lalibela to the island monasteries of Lake Tana and the cultural diversity of the Omo Valley.

UNESCO World Heritage Sites

Ethiopia is dominated by dramatic landscapes and littered with Unesco World Heritage Sites, more than anywhere else in Africa. The Sites are; Lalibela town, Tiya archaeological site, the Omo & Awash Rivers, Fasil Ghebbi & Harar Fortressed cities, Axum known for carved obelisks relics and Simien Mountains National Park.

Individuality

A truly unique destination, caught between eras; in some ways like walking back in time, in others existing fiercely in the present. It’s a destination for wildlife enthusiasts, with numerous endemic species and wonderful birdlife. Somewhere rich in cultural and religious history, both past and present, a place of fascination for anthropologists and archaeologists.
