Highlights

  • Take in the beauty and architectural marvel of 12th Century monolithic churches carved out of pink granite at the UNESCO site of Lalibela.
  • Immerse yourself in Axum, Ethopia’s oldest city, known for its towering structures and the Ark of the Covenant.
  • Go on a guided tour of the castles of Gondor and see the beautiful baths, residences and palaces of Emperor Fasilidas.
  • Spot giant crocodiles, massive hippos and a plethora of water birds on a boat trip down Lake Chamo.
  • Learn about the Mursi, Karo tribe and the Hamer tribe and get a personal glimpse into their lifestyle.
  • Trek through the breathtaking Simien Mountains National Park around the majestic Jinbar waterfalls.
  • See the most stunning fossil collection at the National Museum or experience the hustle and bustle of the Merkato, a busy market in Addis Ababa.
  • Walk around the beautiful Blue Nile Falls and then visit the island monasteries on Lake Tana.

Tips

  • Try your hand at rowing Tankwas, which is a kind of papyrus canoe, commonly found on Lake Tana.
  • If you’re invited to someone’s home, you can take a gift of raw coffee or ‘Bhuna’ which is available at kiosk shops.
  • When you greet someone with a handshake, bow a little bit to show respect.
  • Rise to your feet when an elderly person joins you. As a customary greeting, you can say ‘nor’. They will reply saying ‘be'igzier’ and ask you to sit.
  • Women need to cover their knees and shoulders in Ethiopia, except while visiting Addis Ababa.
  • Restaurant tips range from 2 to 5 Birr irrespective of the total cost of the meal.
  • Ethiopian ATMs do not recognize foreign credit or debit cards so come well-prepared.
  • Ask your tour guide if you’re confused about the ingredients in your meal. For instance, ‘Kitfo’ is raw minced beef and can be a little difficult to digest.
