A bonus will be seeing the renowned World Heritage Site of Lalibela, the headwaters of the Nile at Lake Tana, and the Blue Nile Falls.

To really explore Ethiopia, we will have long drives through spectacular mountainous terrain from Lake Tana to the ancient capital of Gondar, to the amazing rock-hewn churches at Lalibela, and the World Heritage city of Harar.

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 to Gondar at 7,000 feet, and Lalibela at 8,500 feet.

The trip will be a wonderful opportunity to learn about the cultural heritage of the ancient Ethiopian kingdom and its religious heritage.

Please join us for an amazing adventure!
