A medieval world of historical treasures, with Christian beliefs and practices little changed in thousands of years. Mountains and plateaus divided by the Great Rift Valley, surrounded by lowlands, semi-desert and tropical forests. The wide range of altitude has given the country a variety of ecologically distinct areas – from the highest point on the Simiens to the Danakil Depression that lies below sea level.
Ethiopia has an astounding 31 endemic species of mammal, including Galada Baboon, Walia Ibex and Ethiopian Wolf found on the remote mountains of Bale and Simiens. An adventure of a life time, meeting incredible tribes of the Omo, visiting the churches of Tigray and Lalibela, and the ancient kingdom of Axsum.
