We are with you every step of the way. Because unlike other travel companies out there that may offer trips or vacations to Ethiopia as part of their plethora of “product lines,” this is it for us, This is what we do. We know it because our staff are Ethiopians who live in Ethiopia, have studied its history, have lived its culture and enjoy every inch of it. We love Ethiopia and love to talk about it and show it off. So we’ll work with you to create the journey you want and then we’ll take you on it, not just hand you off to some sub-contractor. Our years of experience will guide you in your choices of venues and hotels and create a vacation you’re not going to forget.

Sustainability: Profits to Communities

A lot of people in tourism talk about sustainability. but the ugly truth is most of your dollars stay with the company that sells the journey. It’s changing and the internet helps a lot. But we have gone one step further. We’re a hybrid. We market the tour and operate the company in Ethiopia to insure you the best service, quality, and convenience. And the owner is an Ethiopian endowment fund which uses the profits to improve the lives of the people of Ethiopia.


We have created great journeys. From our tour director and management staff to drivers and guides, you’ll be benefiting from their years of experience in the field as well as their formal education in Ethiopian history, law, and tourism from such schools and universities as the Addis Ababa University, the University of Bahir Dar as well as CTTI, the Catering and Tourism Training Institute. But if there is something that catches your interest, we’re happy to accommodate and modify to your tastes. Also all tours have drive and flight options that allow for different experiences depending on the length of your stay. We know for many people, a trip to Africa, is the once in a lifetime dream trip. We’ll help you make the most of it. And we always allow you time to have buna at the local cafe to soak up the culture and relax. Its beauty belies a country of war and sorrow.

Customer Service

We’ll be working with you to make your trip to East Africa truly special. Experience Ethiopia Travel is different from most companies. Our base of operations is in Addis Ababa. We don’t just sell travel we are travel operators, so you’ll be our guests in Ethiopia and we’ll be taking care of all the arrangements necessary to make your trip memorable. In Kenya and Tanzania, our partner, ARP Travel Group, have been operators of East African safaris for more than 50 years and we share a similar business philosophy of operating what we offer our customers.

About Ethiopia

Written by


Experience the only African nation that was never colonized and the only African nation that can boast 17 centuries of Christian tradition. A country so rich in history that four destinations in northern Ethiopia have been designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites (eleven in total). Ethiopia from the time of King Solomon and Queen of Sheba is a land filled with historical, cultural and natural treasures. Meanwhile, southern Ethiopia is a destination that is most unique where time has stood still. Visit the various tribal villages and nomads and be amazed at their current lifestyle, and social infrastructure that is reminiscent of bygone eras.

Above all things, it is a country of great antiquity with a culture and traditions dating back more than 3,000 years. This is Ethiopia.


Ethiopia and its history is the story of Africa at its inception. Archeologists and anthropologists commonly count Ethiopia as the origin of man. In 1994 the oldest human remains ever were discovered here. The 4.4 million old bones of Homo Ramidus Afarensis, were found in Ethiopia's Afar region - the previous record was held by "Lucy" or "Dinkinish" (Amharic for "wonderful"), who at 3.4 million years was a relative youngster.

Ethiopia has extensive historic sites, particularly in the north of the country, where the tourists can view buildings dating from the first millennium BC, the stelae and tombs of the Axumite kings, rock hewn churches dating from the 4th century, the monasteries of Lake Tana and the 13th century monolithic rock hewn churches of King Lalibela in Wollo. In the east, the 1000 year old city of Harrar, with its more than 99 mosques, is considered as the fourth holiest place in Islam, after Mecca, Median and Jerusalem. South of Addis Ababa there are a number of Neolithic sites, including the 1.5-1.8 million year old site at Melka Kunture (Oromia Region) and the 400 stelae at Dilla in Sidamo (Southern Region). Elsewhere in the southern region there are remote, medieval monasteries and in Jimma, in Oromia, there is the recently restored palace of Abba Jiffar, the last independent king of the area.


Ethiopia is a land of great variety, from the high peaks of the Semien Mountain in Amhara to the below sea-level Danakil Depression in the Afar region, tropical forests, lakes, savannah and deserts. In Bale National Park in Oromia, home of many endemic mammals and birds, visitors can see unique alpine fauna and flora, volcanic lakes and trout filled streams. For big game safaris, there are the Omo and Mago National Parks in the Southern Region, with their fascinating Mursi and Hamer villages..


Ethiopia is a land of enormous ethnic diversity, with people of Semitic, Hamitic, Nilotic ,cushitic and Omotic stock. There are more than 80 ethnic groups and as many languages. In terms of religion, Christians and Muslims make up Widely Used of /believed by /the population

What unites Ethiopia's many people is primarily their shared independent existence. Ethiopia was never colonized and though occupied by Mussolini's Fascists from 1935-1941, its people put up a continuous, spirited and vigorous resistance. While ex-colonies are characterized by their resonance with their former colonial powers, Ethiopia is Ethiopian and this will be obvious to the visitor from the moment of arrival in Addis Ababa. Courtesy and hospitality are prized qualities throughout the country.

With its combination of history and culture, ethnic diversity, stunning and varied scenery, wildlife and birdlife (there are more than 850 species recorded, with 29 endemics), Ethiopia is truly unique in Africa.


Despite its location in the Horn of Africa, Ethiopia is a very safe country to visit, and Addis Ababa is still one of the safest capitals in Africa. There is little incidence of personal crimes such as assault and robbery, and the country’s security forces have taken great measures to prevent terrorists from instigating violence that could arm the safety of residents and visitors and disrupt the business community, which has registered 8 years of significant growth. Visitors should, of course, take the usual precautions - not carry large amounts of money with them and leave particularly valuable items locked away. Both men and women should be careful to keep handbags and personal property at hand in crowded places like Mercato.

Like everywhere else, pickpockets like to create some kind of diversion before making their move, so visitors should walk purposefully and be cautious about sudden introductions in the street.

In Addis Ababa, such incidents as do occur tend to happen in the city center, in a circle linking the Ghion, Ethiopian and Ras Hotels..

Health & Precautions

Ethiopia requires all visitors to have an up-to-date Yellow Fever vaccination certificate. Generally, for their own protection, visitors should be immunized or have received a booster shot against hepatitis A and B, Tetanus, Typhoid and Polio.

In regard to malaria, visitors on the Historic Route (Axum, Gondar, Bahar Dar and Lalibela) need not worry about malaria, but should bring insect repellent cream, gel or spray for mosquitoes.

The area of Ethiopia directly to the south of Addis Ababa is also considered a malaria free zone. Before your trip, please consult online malaria zone maps which are made available by the US Center for Disease Control and the website in the UK. Chloroquine is not effective against malaria in Ethiopia.

For visitors sensitive to insect bites, it is advisable to bring antihistamine cream or tablets. Some old buildings and old churches on the Historic Route are prone to flea infestation.

It is worth carrying some antiseptic cream, for minor cuts. Anti-diarrhea tablets (Imodium or Lomatil) should be carried as a precautionary measure - if you do have a stomach upset, it might be some distance to the nearest toilet and either of these tablets is guaranteed to help. (These only address the symptoms rather than what caused them, so for anything more serious than a stomach upset medical advice should be sought - there are government hospitals in most areas of tourist interest.)

The temperatures in the highlands (on the Historic Route) are moderate, rarely exceeding 30oC even at the hottest times of the year. However, the sun is strong and visitors coming from cooler climates should get a high protection grade (15) UV barrier cream, particularly for the face. For the arms and legs, a lower protection grade would be sufficient. With the dry weather, lip balms are recommended. For visitors who make the boat trip on Lake Tana, or even some of the longer mule trips around Axum or Lalibela, hats should be worn.

All visitors are advised to take out standard holiday insurance covering health emergencies in their country of origin.
