Discover Ethiopia

Ethiopia well exceeded our already high expectations, and we had a really wonderful trip. This was helped by having a superb tour manager/guide in Gebre who really was the best guide we have ever had, in any of our travels to countries across the world. He was most professional and competent, remaining calm and dealing skilfully with whatever situation presented, ensuring that our comparatively large and diverse group all had a safe and enjoyable journey.

Green Hills faraway

We came prepared for a few hiccups and certainly the interminable immigration formalities at Addis and the snails pace drive to the hotel reflected these concerns but as soon we were entrusted to the excellent care of your guide Kibrom the hiccups subsided. The first afternoon in Addis was not all that inspiring - particularly the rather sad museum, but once we got to Bahatr Dar things got moving. Gonder and the the long drive to Debark and on to Axum was not something we would have wished to miss. Magnificent walk in mountains with which we could cope. What views of green and intensive cultivation. . Axum will be more presentable when the roads are finished but what stellae when you compare with celtic Brittany, although they are not the Queen of Sheba's vintage. Then to Lalibella which lived up to expectations. Other reviewers have been a bit dismissive of the final days in the south but we felt they complimented the north - we enjoyed the birds hippos and views of their agriculture particularly the amazing polythene greenhouses which have taken much of the flower trade from these islands.

Exodus Response

We are extremely pleased to read that Peter has some great memories from his trip last October. Since Peter travelled last year, we can confirm that the hotel he stayed at in Wendogenet is no longer used on this trip. We hope that future travellers will enjoy this trip as much as Peter did – Exodus Customer Services

DISCOVER ETHIOPIA

Such a unique country because of its culture and history. We went on the Timkat Gondar departure followed by the Harar extension - which we would thoroughly recommend - like a foreign legion outpost + hyenas. Prepare for early starts and busy days. A bird watchers paradise.

DISCOVER ETHIOPIA

Ethiopia is a wonderful place. There were no starving children; bare fields; empty shops. The Ethiopians are hard working and proud people who look after their land and welcome visitors.

DISCOVER ETHIOPIA

This is a fascinating trip combining amazing scenery with a variety of opportunities to engage with local people and their colourful culture and history. Days and journeys can be long but are not an issue as there's so much to see and do. Ethiopia is a photographer's dream!

DISCOVER ETHIOPIA

The planning of this trip in conjunction with the Classis Kenya Safari by Exodus and especially Diane Knight was excellent. With the exception of the Group Leader it 'ticked all the boxes'.
