Visit operator website

Run by: Travel The Unknown

Reference number: 79

From: £2495

Packed with historical secrets, Northern Ethiopia is unlike anywhere in Africa. In Addis Ababa, come face-to-face with Lucy, the oldest humanoid in the world. Visit remote rock-hewn churches in Tigray and Lalibela. The towering obelisks of Axum tell the story of a once-great Empire where the Ark of the Covenant is still believed to reside. The island forest in Lake Tana hides ancient monasteries, vervet monkeys and birdlife. Nearby, trek to the source of the Blue Nile and spot gelada baboons and wild ibex in the Simien Mountains.
