Step inside the ancient stone churches of Lalibela carved from solid rock. Enjoy a traditional coffee ceremony with a local farming family whilst hiking in the Meket highlands and search for the rare Ethiopian wolf in the awesome Simien Mountains. In terms of tourism, Ethiopia is still young, but this undiscovered gem has already established itself as a fascinating, off-the-beaten-track destination.

An ancient and mysterious land with well over three thousand years of recorded history, Ethiopia is not only one of the worlds’ oldest countries, but holds the further distinction of being the oldest independent nation in Africa. Once home to the Queen of Sheba, ruler of the historical kingdom mentioned in both the Old Testament and the Qu’ran and still home to the fabled Ark of the Covenant that housed the Ten Commandments, Ethiopia transports you back in time to a mystical world full of legends and tales.
