Ethiopia is like nowhere else on earth - a beautiful country with an amazing history - the oldest independent country in Africa.
We go to Axum, the land of the Queen of Sheba; explore the Simien Mountains National Park; discover mystical Gondar, known as "the Camelot of Africa"; cruise on Lake Tana; visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Lalibela; have an excursion to the medieval town of Harar and stay at an Eco Lodge beside Lake Langano.


  • Explore Ethiopia's fascinating and lively capital city, Addis Ababa.
  • See the remarkable stellae in Axum, one of which is considered the largest single block of stone mankind has ever attempted to erect.
  • Be impressed by the stunning volcanic mountain scenery of the Simien National Park.
  • Explore the magical, medieval castle ruins of Gondar.
  • See the Blue Nile Falls on a walk through the Ethiopian countryside.
  • Marvel at the frescoes in the monasteries and churches of Lake Tana, source of the Blue Nile.
  • Be astonished at the feats of masonry which created the rock-hewn churches of Lalibela; Ethiopia's’ most important historical site and a true wonder of the world.
  • Visit exotic Harar with its World Heritage-listed ancient walled town.
  • Look for wildlife in the Awash National Park.
  • Watch hippos in the lake when staying at the Hara Langano Eco Lodge.
  • Enjoy some of the best bird-watching in Africa.

A warm and bubbly person Janet certainly knows her stuff about international travel.

Well organised and able to problem solve, we found Janet easy to relate to.
