This nation is rich in culture, natural beauty and history. Its stunning landscapes and ancient traditions leave people with a lasting impression that dispels the myth that Ethiopia is just a land stricken by drought and famine. Located in what is known as the ‘Cradle of Humanity’, this nation provides an extraordinary journey through spectacular landscapes and glorious vistas which compete with wildlife reserves for the visitor’s attention.
Simien Mountains National Park is a particularly stunning area where you can stand atop this panoramic precipice and view the amazing Abyssinian abyss. Sitting among the gelada baboons or marvelling at the horned walla ibex, is a must for wildlife enthusiasts. This World Heritage Site, with its dramatic scenery, is the fourth highest peak in Africa made up of a rock massif which slopes down to the grasslands and gorge. Fifty species of birds can also be seen in this area but it is the protection of the rare mammals which inhabit this lush region that offer the most rewarding experience.
