Exploring Medieval Harar
From Addis Ababa we fly to Bahar Dar on the banks of Lake Tana. Close by is the source of the Blue Nile and the Tississat Falls, a 45m drop which is the start of a 1000 mile journey to Khartoum. In the lively market town of Gondar we'll visit 17th century castles, once the centre of a unique and powerful kingdom unlike anything else found in Africa. On the high plateau we discover the impressive scenery of the Simien range - home to the Gelada baboon and rare Simien fox.

Sacred Axum & Rock-Cut Churches
We begin in Dire Dawa and the medieval town of Harar. The people here are quite different from other parts of Ethiopia. We take a walk around the old town which has a north African flavour with Moorish gateways, ancient walls, narrow alleyways and jostling crowds. The market here is one of the most colourful in Ethiopia. We return to Addis via the stunning scenery and wildlife of Awash National Park.
