Ethiopia has so much to offer visitors. The Historic Route covers the ancient town of Axum, with its amazing carved obelisks, Christian festivals and relics, including the Ark of the Covenant; Gondar, with its castles and palaces; Lalibela, with its remarkable rock-hewn churches; and the walled Muslim city of Harar. In Dire Dawa, you can marvel at cave paintings that are thousands of years old. On Lake Tana, the source of the Blue Nile, ancient monasteries are tucked away on remote islands.

The lakes and national parks of the Great Rift Valley are home to countless species of birds and wildlife, while the Omo Valley is world-famous for its vibrant tribal communities, such as the Hamer and Mursi.

The rugged Simien Mountains in the north and the Bale Mountains
in the south are home to rare and unique wildlife. These regions are ideal for trekking, while some of Ethiopia’s fast-flowing rivers are becoming famous for white-water rafting.

Ethiopia’s capital, Addis Ababa, also has much to offer, with first-class hotels and restaurants, museums, palaces, and the unbeatable, always vibrant Merkato, Africa’s largest open-air market.

Ethiopia, ‘the land of a thousand smiles’, is our home, so
