On this incredible adventure we will walk across it, viewing its beautiful and exotic wildlife including Mountain Nyala, Ethiopian Red Wolf, impala, warthogs and Colobus Monkeys; meeting the nomadic herders grazing their flocks on the plateau and learning about their culture.

  • SarahMarshall's review about another Yellowwood Adventures Ltd tour
    5.0 - Excellent

    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.

  • KatherineAndrews's review about another Yellowwood Adventures Ltd tour
    5.0 - Excellent

    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
