Ethiopia Holidays

Ethiopia is a land of fire and water and a crucible of life on Earth. For over ten thousand years, civilisations have risen and fallen, leaving their marks on the country while the mountains, volcanos and mighty rivers have watched on. Great churches and monuments adorn the landscape from Axum and Lalibela in the north to the Omo Valley in the south while Volcano Erta Ale in the north east gives stark reminder of the power of the world beneath our feet.

With most of the country at over 1,500 metres above sea level, the “Roof of Africa” is home to dozens of endemic species and 9 UNESCO World Heritage sites, more than any other African country. Peel back the layers of the past and culture at your fingertips travelling by 4x4 or through local flights to those less accessible places and feel the gaze of King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba as you tread through the annals of history.

A magnet for hikers, adventurers and wildlife lovers alike, Ethiopia is fast growing into one of the most up and coming destinations on the continent. Explore the local culture with cooking classes, music events and annual religious festivals and travel beyond the iconic rock-hewn churches in the north into the mountains and national parks for a unique, eye opening experience.

What to Pack

We recommend taking warm clothing with you, especially if you are visiting the mountains, where night time temperatures can drop below freezing regardless of the time of year.
