Custom Journeys to Ethiopia

Tucked away in one corner of the continent, all of Africa seems to emanate from Ethiopia. It may also be the dot on planet earth from which humans first emerged and colonised the world. It's the source of the longest river, the Nile, and the Rift Valley that sprawls over most of its real estate can be seen from space. The wildlife is unique (the Gelada Baboons are worth the price of a ticket alone), the food exceptional, the topography will leave you slack-jawed, and nature-adventure enthusiasts cite it very high on their bucket-lists; from the World Heritage Simien Mountains and their jagged cloud-covered peaks, to the surreal and alien Danakil Depression 400 ft below sea level, Ethiopia is a staggering snapshot of a once-in-a-lifetime vacation spot that will be the stuff of conversations for years.
