    Travelling with YellowWood is a true adventure. Their expertly crafted itineraries get under the skin of a destination, escaping the tourist trail and really getting to the heart and soul of a place and its people.

    A once in a lifetime adventure witnessing Ethiopian cultural heritage at its best as well as sublime, albeit challenging treks deep into the Gheralta Mountains. Both locals and guides were utterly charming
