Ethiopia Cultural Walking Tour

Ethiopia Cultural Walking Tour Overview

Ethiopia, a Cultural Walking tour from the Blue Nile to the Simien Mountains, explores many facets of this ancient civilisation - 12C rock-cut churches in Lalibela and Tigray; wildlife walks in the Simien mountains; a boat trip on Lake Tana and the imperial capitals of Gondar and Axum.

Ethiopia has held legendary status for centuries, with travellers’ tales of extraordinary imperial cities, a unique culture with its own church, language and script, exotic traditional ceremonies and a bewildering geographical and natural diversity. Exploring Ethiopia, these legends become vivid reality, providing a fascinating and rewarding insight into an isolated society where life has continued virtually unchanged for millennia.

Over two weeks, travelling by road, internal flights and on foot, we visit Lake Tana (source of the Blue Nile) with its early grass-roofed churches; the ancient imperial capitals of Axum and Gondar; informative museums in Addis Ababa (including the prehistoric finds which have earned Ethiopia the title of ‘Cradle of Humanity’); witness atmospheric Ethiopian Orthodox services in the remarkable complex of 12th century rock-hewn churches in Lalibela; and walk in the Simien Mountains, perhaps the most dramatic scenery in Africa.
