This fascinating journey uncovers the richness of one of Africa’s most beautiful countries from north to south. Beginning with the best of its historical northern sites, with their rock-hewn churches and ancient monasteries, you’ll then travel deep into the heart of the Omo Valley, one of the most culturally diverse places on earth.
Beginning with the 2,000 year old city of Axum, your adventure begins amongst the haunting remains of one of the last great civilisations of antiquity. Moving on into the barren landscapes of the Lasta Mountains, you’ll then discover the remarkable rock-cut churches of Lalibela, before flying on to Gonder and the breathtaking beauty of the Simien Mountain ranges.
Then begins your journey into the sweeping panoramas of the Great African Rift Valley, where you’ll visit the extraordinary tribal peoples of the Lower Omo Valley, home to probably one of the most unique and extensive collections of ethnic tribes anywhere in the world. Here you will have ample opportunity to visit colourful markets and uncover the rich cultural diversity of some of the most unique tribal peoples in Africa.
