Without doubt Ethiopia is one of Africa’s most diverse and spectacular countries, with a fascinating history and some of the most dramatic archaeological sites of the continent.
Explore’s holidays in Ethiopia focus on the landscapes, people and above all the history of this remarkable country: from the rock-hewn churches of Lalibela to the amazing castles of Gondar and Axum’s mysterious obelisks, the whole country is infused with a rich and vibrant history.
The landscapes of Ethiopia are dominated by the Ethiopian Highlands, sometimes called the Roof of Africa, whose grassy highlands and relatively mild climate sustained the civilisations of the past.
No-one on holiday in Ethiopia can come away without being touched by the warm and friendly welcome of her people, whose generosity is often quite humbling.
For hikers the Simien Highlands of Northern Ethiopia offer some of the best trekking in Africa, and some simply breathtaking views. The rocky plateaux, peaks and canyons of this wild walking country are home to populations of Gelada baboon and other rare fauna and flora.
