Ethiopia

Discover a mysterious, diverse country with a rich history, fascinating traditions, vibrant culture, breathtaking landscapes and an extraordinary tribal heritage.

Ethiopia is one of Africa's most enthralling destinations.

Fabled land of the Queen of Sheba, Ethiopia is a captivating destination known for its 13th century cave churches, medieval castles and churches and what is believed to be the biblical Ark of the Covenant. It is also the source of the Blue Nile with beautiful falls that create steam clouds and rainbows, known locally as “Smoking Water”.  

An Ethiopian journey with A&K provides privileged access to the people and places that make this country special including the ancient city of Axum, the rock-hewn churches at Lalibela, the Simien Mountains, Lake Tana and Gondar, known as “the Camelot of Africa”.

When to Go

Weatherwise, he best time to travel to Ethiopia is from October-April, although after the rains from June to October, the countryside is very green and full of wild flowers in September and early October. For festivals, the three-day Timket or feast of the Epiphany is one of the biggest festivals of the year, and takes place in January. The two-day Meskal in September celebrates the Finding of the True Cross with bonfires, music, dance and priests in full ceremonial regalia.
