Itinerary Description

With a country as large and diverse as Ethiopia with so many highlights on offer, it can be overwhelming trying to fit as much in as possible in an attempt to “see it all”. With this in mind, we try to customize itineraries to get an in depth look into a culture and history that dates back to the very origins of civilization and where the more well-known and impressive attractions are visited, with a couple of hidden gems thrown in.
