It was good to see and experience contrasting aspects of Northern Ethiopia, both cultural and natural, and having guides who knew their town or region made a huge difference to our trip. (more)Nick Waterfield
Everything was memorable. Perhaps the "treks" in Janamora and West Mesket stand out, or the smiley friendliness of everyone... Fabulous, loved every minute. (more)Tony Riley

The entire trip was very memorable. The churches were beautiful, the historical sites were interesting, the people were warm and friendly. I loved being in the midst of the gelada baboons. (more)Sheryl Padjen
The most exciting was seeing the Wallia Ibex and the open heart monkeys. The most memorable is the image of the people on the move, herding their cattle and livestock, walking on the roadside, carrying heavy loads, everything from water containers, sacks of grain, wood, hay and even stones.

From
€1,940

Memorable parts? We named it the “5000 Star Hotel” under the full moon on a windy night as we told stories around a small fire. That was on the very edge of the Bandiagara Cliff in Dogon Country. The rocks and the edge of the cliffs were –right there —and the stories told and laughter were very precious. Our guide Aly and his Dogon friends made a conversation in multiple broken languages fun and enlightening. It truly felt like the mythical Shangra-La. And the rich history of Timbuktu....
