Dear Travelers!
We invite you to join us as we discover the unique history, mountains, rock-hewn churches, and natural world of Ethiopia!

We will see the headwaters of the Nile at Lake Tana, and the Blue Nile Falls.

Ethiopia Map

To really explore Ethiopia, we will have long drives through spectacular mountainous terrain from Lake Tana to the amazing rock-hewn churches at Lalibela.

We will relish the natural world at 10,000 feet in the Simien Mountains, with breathtaking views across Ethiopia and troops of gelada monkeys grazing around us. With luck, we might see an Ethiopian wolf.

Ethiopia is the highest country in Africa. The fascinating mountainous countryside will be intriguing and breathtaking. We will travel from Addis Ababa at 7,700 feet to Lake Tana at 6,000 feet, and then Gondar at 7,000 feet, Lalibela at 8,500 feet.
