Join us on this small group tour to Ethiopia for the Timkat Festival which is the Ethiopian Orthodox Church’s celebration of Epiphany. Pilgrims travel for days to the church’s at which the celebrations are held and we will join them this year in Lalibela. In addition, discover Ethiopia’s natural beauty as revealed in the Simien Mountains, where we walk amidst some of Africa’s most captivating scenery looking for endemic gelada baboons and other wildlife. In Lalibela, we spend time exploring both the main churches and lesser known ones before driving to the region of Tigray. It is similar to Petra with churches hewn out of the surrounding landscape, but quite spectacular, with many built halfway up almost inaccessible cliff faces. We spend time learning about the history of the ancient Axumite Empire at Axum and travel to ‘Africa’s Camelot’ - the wonderful castles and palaces of Gondar. A truly unforgettable tour.
*Price based on flights from London with Ethiopian Airlines and with two people travelling together and sharing a twin/double room. Subject to availability at the time of booking. Not compatible with any other offers.
