Escorted Journey

Nothing quite prepares the traveller for Ethiopia's breathtaking beauty, ancient imperial history, rich culture, and sheer diversity of people. From the rugged Simien Mountains to dramatic desert landscapes and lush countryside, it was here the first humans roamed and today, the rich tribal culture and strong Coptic Christian beliefs offer an amazing contrast. Ethiopia was the only country in Africa never colonised, and the lack of outside influence gives visitors an insight into an old and original Africa. See areas of Ethiopia that are home to many rural tribes, including the Mursi of the Omo Valley. Visit the most important sites including Lalibela, with its 12th century rock-cut Christian churches and Axum, the ruins of an ancient city featuring obelisks, tombs, castles, and Our Lady Mary of Zion church.

YOUR JOURNEY AT A GLANCE: • Enjoy a stopover to break the journey in the modern city of Doha • Explore Stone Town in Zanzibar with its many cultural influences and intriguing history - where Africa meets Arabia • Visit the Simien Mountains - a vast cauldron of deep ravines and gorges, towering pinnacles and rock spires, and fascinating wildlife found nowhere else on Earth • Admire the impressive castles of Gondar • Travel back to biblical times at Axum and learn the history of the Queen of Sheba • Walk through the incredible rock-hewn churches of Lalibela - carved out of solid rock by hand • Walk on the salt pans of the Dallol Depression • Visit some of the most traditional tribes in Africa with their striking decorations
