Africa Adventure Consultants Ethiopian Epic Trip has been chosen as one of National Geographic Traveler Magazine’s 2010 Tours of a Lifetime. The article will be published in the May/June 2010 edition of Traveler. According to the National Geographic website:

“We’re traveling again. Tour operators are reporting big spikes in inquiries and bookings. But an uncertain economy, ongoing wars, and the fragile health of the planet have, perhaps permanently, reordered priorities. Travelers now seek more perspective, meaning, and challenge. They want to see the unvarnished reality of a place, not just the fantasy. Outfitters have responded by dialing down the luxury and refocusing on core offerings. Their itineraries are more innovative and experiential—aimed at developing lasting connections between people. Here are 50 of the world’s best guided tours for 2010, as chosen by the editors of National Geographic Traveler magazine.”

The Ethiopian Epic gets top billing in the Africa category. This trip takes you to the highlights of the north, including island monasteries on Lake Tana, the source of the Blue Nile, medieval castles in Gondar, and the fabulous rock-hewn churches of Lalibela. In the south guests interact with indigenous tribes with visits to Dorze, Hamer, Dassanech, and Karo villages, amongst others. The trip is the perfect combination of history and cultures that are unique to this up and coming destination. For more information give us a call at 866-778-1089.
