Ethiopia’s Historical North

December 15, 2009  By: Africa Adventure Consultants

Have you dreamed of losing yourself in a place where time seemingly stands still? A place where history is truly “living” and tourists are few…journey to Ethiopia with us. Our Ethiopia program, including our Historical Ethiopia Tour, was just recommended by the San Francisco Chronicle in this weekend’s article ” A leap of faith to Ethiopia’s ancient holy sites.”

Ethiopia is one of the oldest civilizations and offers unique experiences in history, archeology, culture, and nature. Discover the wonders of the Blue Nile, Gondar, Lalibela and Axum on this journey through multiple eras and civilizations. Friendly and knowledgeable local guides make your trip special. This adventure in Ethiopia is for travelers with an adventurous spirit who are willing to occasionally sacrifice their own comfort to experience a new culture.

Some of our favorite highlights include exploring the ancient subterranean churches in Lalibela as priests chant in the ancient Ge’ez language; wandering through the castles and baths in Gondar – especially at Timkat (Epiphany); gazing up at the massive steale in Axum or trying to catch a glimpse of the priest who guards the Ark…In Ethiopia, adventure is a bit different from other places in Africa and that’s what makes it so unique. The intact culture and living history are there waiting to be experienced.

In addition to our Historical Ethiopia Tour, we also offer a more comprehensive tour that includes the wild Lower Omo Valley – the Ethiopian Epic and fully customizable trekking options in the Simien Mountains. For more information, please email info@adventuresinafrica.com or call 1-866-778-1089.
