Ethiopia has an ancient history, a unique geographic circumstance and a contemporary appeal. Ethiopia travel is not routine. Accommodations are few, but the rigor of travel and the lack of amenities are a small cost for an exceptional guided group or individual Ethiopia travel experience. With JOURNEYS, you will travel to and explore some of the most interesting areas in Ethiopia and learn about Ethiopia's cultural and natural history. You will stay in comfortable hotels, travel in safe private vehicles and enjoy the company of very knowledgeable naturalist-historian guides. In Ethiopia, the birding is fantastic and every moment provides a photographic invitation.
