One of Africa’s most beautiful countries, Ethiopia truly is one of the continent’s undiscovered gems. Taking you from the bustling streets of its capital to the source of the Blue Nile, this comprehensive journey through its northern highlands reveals the country’s staggeringly rich cultural pedigree, from the Queen of Sheba to Haile Salassie.
In Addis Ababa you will have a chance to visit one of the most important sub-Saharan museums in Africa, before flying on to the extraordinary rock-cut churches of Lalibela, one of Africa’s most remarkable historical settings. Next stop is Axum, a city steeped in the legends of the Queen of Sheba, the Ark of the Covenant and the Aksumite Kingdom, once one of the most powerful in the ancient world.
After journeying through the breathtaking vistas of the Simien Mountains, you then head for the old imperial city of Gonder, the 17th century capital of the emperor Fasiladas, before the last leg of the journey sees you standing before the expansive waters of Lake Tana. The source of the Blue Nile, the lake is also home to the smoking waters of Tis Isat Falls and a number of fascinating island monasteries.
