About this trip

What makes this trip life-changing?


The ground you’ll cover

This LuxVenture® across Ethiopia offers a unique take on all that this mysterious east African nation has to offer. You’ll enjoy 10 days in one of the most misunderstood countries in the world, exploring undisturbed wilderness and coming face to face with rare Ghelada Baboons, illusive Ethiopian Wolves of which there are only 50 left in the wild, and jackals. You will visit the Simien Mountains and marvel at its endless sheer cliffs and rolling hills, take a lake cruise through the region of Bahir Dar and famous coffee forests, and Gheralta for its ancient rock churches. Your journey through Ethiopia will also take you to the UNESCO site of Lalibela for its churches, Axum for the Ark of the Covenant and its ancient tombs, Gondar and the ancient baths of Emperor Fasiladas, and the bustling capital Addis Ababa, the home of Lucy’s Skeleton, one of the four great powers of the ancient world.
