Take a guided tour of Addis Ababa in the company of an English-speaking local expert. Check out the Ethnographic Museum and the graves of Hailie Selassie. Take in the views from the top of Mount Entoto, then peruse the marketplaces that are set up in the open air.
Explore the UNESCO-recognized Simien Mountains National Park while on a hiking trip. To get the whole East African experience, stay the night in a tented camp. While on this trip, find out more about the endangered Gelada baboon and Simien fox.
Explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site and the highest point in Africa, Simien Mountains National Park. While exploring this remote area, you can see many native species, such as Ethiopian Simien foxes and Walia ibex.
There are two distinct landscapes in Ethiopia: the Simien Mountains and the Danakil Desert. The Simien Mountains National Park is part of the World Heritage Site. The mountains are made up of plateaus, valleys, and peaks. In contrast, the Afar Triple Junction, where three tectonic plates collide, is located in Danakil. When tectonic plates separate, as they did in Danakil, they leave behind a trail of geysers, hot springs, and other natural phenomena. Among the most remarkable man-made structures in sub-Saharan Africa is Lalibela, Ethiopia. In addition to the "must-see" historical sites in Lalibela, we also include traditional Ethiopian hospitality and a personal touch to make your trip truly memorable.
Intimidated by Addis Ababa's hectic traffic and expansive layout, a private driver and guide make seeing Ethiopia's must-see metropolis much easier. On this private full-day trip to Ethiopia's capital city, you'll see a Second World War site, the Addis Ababa Museum, and the enormous Merkato.
Learn about Ethiopia's holiest town and its UNESCO World Heritage-listed rock-hewn cathedrals in the 12th century in Lalibela, often known as the "new Jerusalem." So many people come to see the 12th-century rock-hewn churches that are still standing. They are often called the 8th wonder of the world, and we can't wait to help our customers find them!

Trying all of Ethiopia's famed cuisine on your own can be intimidating due to the menus' abundance of foreign components. Taking a food tour in Ethiopia is a terrific way to get a taste of the country's growing culinary industry and sample a wide variety of Ethiopian foods that you may otherwise overlook. In addition, a guide's insight into the area's gastronomic culture is a valuable perk of a tour of the Atlas neighborhood.
