Ethiopia & Madagascar: Churches, Mountains & Beaches

Taking you from the religious rock-cut churches in Lalibela to the outstanding Simien Mountains and the pristine beaches of Madagascar’s Nosy Be archipelago, this is a fantastic cultural and wildlife rich journey encompassing two of the most fascinating and unique countries in Africa.

Beginning in Lalibela, you will see the extraordinary rock-cut churches of Lalibela, one of Africa’s most remarkable historical settings. After journeying through the breathtaking vistas of the Simien Mountains in search of endemic wildlife and remote villages, you then head for the old imperial city of Gonder, the 17th century capital of the emperor Fasiladas.

The final leg of the journey then sees you crossing by plane to the island paradise of Nosy Komba, where the climax of the adventure affords a chance to enjoy golden beaches, fresh seafood and an opportunity to swim and snorkel in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean before taking a return flight back to Addis Ababa.
