    • What is the accommodation like on this tour?

      For our Ethiopia trips accommodation is on a twin share basis, unless single rooms and tents are requested and paid for in advance. While trekking, you will be sleeping in twin share tents.

    • How is the food organised for this tour?

      There will be communal dining and your trek crew will cook all meals.

    • Are there toilets available on this tour for the camping part?

      Toilet tents are not provided. All the campsites have officially built long drop toilets, with the exception of Shona Enscarpment Camp where it is bush toileting only.

    • What bedding / equipment is provided and what do I need to bring?

      All group camping equipment is provided including tents, camping mattresses and camping pillows. Sleeping bags are not provided. We strongly recommend bringing your own sleeping bag rated to at least -5oC as it gets very cold in the Highlands. These can be hired if absolutely necessary (additional cost applies) if requested at least 1 month in advance.
