    Churches of Tigray & Lalibela
    Churches of Tigray & Lalibela
    For many, the rock-hewn churches are the main draw in Ethiopia, a lasting testament to the last Christian kingdom in North Africa. You can marvel at the craftsmanship of these amazing structures in Tigray and at the UNESCO World Heritage listed Lalibela.
    Gondar
    Gondar
    Gondar was Ethiopia’s first capital and was the cultural and religious centre of Ethiopia for over a century. Today it is best known for its imposing 17th Century royal castles and palaces, and is often referred to as the ‘The Camelot of Africa’.
    Simien Mountains
    Simien Mountains
    Simien Mountains National Park boasts beautiful mountain scenery where jagged peaks contrast sharply with deep green gorges. Home to gelada baboons, the park offers some unique wildlife spotting opportunities and fantastic trekking routes.
    Bahir Dar
    Bahir Dar
    The attractive city of Bahir Dar serves as the gateway to the captivating Blue Nile Falls and Lake Tana. The area is renowned for its many ancient monasteries and it is well worth taking a boat ride across the lake to see the beautiful paintings inside the monastery of Ura Kidane Mihret.
