AITO: The Association of Independent Tour Operators

Pilgrimage to Ethiopia by McCabe Pilgrimages

We visit the rock-cut churches of Lalibela, the African Jerusalem.

Axum is the land of the Queen of Sheba and the Ark of the Covenant was brought here from Jerusalem. At Gondar, the Camelot of Africa we visit medieval castles. At Bahir Dar, we sail on Lake Tana, source of the Blue Nile. Four flights within Ethiopia are included and for logistical reasons each party is restricted to eighteen travellers.

Ethiopia is a plateau, riven by deep gorges, and its isolation has ensured that its people and culture are quite distinct from the rest of Africa. For thousands of years this has been reflected in its history. This is a poor country periodically devastated by famine, but beautifully green and fertile for the most part and constantly modernising.
