Holidays in Northern Ethiopia

Northern Ethiopia is a treasure trove of historical capitals where religious customs from the Middle Ages continue to thrive in the Queen of Sheba's Axum, Lalibela with its 13th century rock-hewn churches, and Gondar, capital in the 17th and 18th centuries.

Finally, we can arrange treks into the Simien Mountains, nicknamed 'God's chess set' after their weather eroded shapes, to explore the habitat of the gelada baboon.

Original Travel have repeatedly visited the north of this fascinating country and the guides that we use are well educated and will substantially enrich your whole experience in Ethiopia.
