Ethiopia is an extraordinary country, and the only one in Africa, except for Egypt, with such a rich history and with an original culture, the lifespan of which encompasses hundreds of years. Ethiopia is very heterogeneous. The North of it is the mainstay of Christianity, thanks to which fact Ethiopia is sometimes referred to as the Island of Black Christianity, surrounded by the Sea of Islam. Travelling south, one will find themselves in real Black Africa, in which the passage of time came to a standstill several centuries ago. For several centuries, the Muslim East has been under the influence of nations from the Arabian Peninsula. In Axum, the legendary Ark of the Covenant, which contains the tables which Moses received from God, is stored. However, no one is ever permitted to see it, except for the appointed guardian, who then serves in this capacity throughout their entire life.
Ethiopia is a large country offering an incredible variety of natural, cultural and historical attractions. Its uniquely diversified climatic and landscape conditions makes it a habitat for numerous animals. Especially the population of birds, many of which can only be found in Ethiopia, is very big. After rain, the soil in Ethiopia is ornamented with a ‘carpet’ of colourful flowers. Also the amount of endemic plants is bigger than in most African countries.
Ethiopia (previously, also referred to as Abyssinia) is a country, situated in the East of Africa, in the so-called the Horn of Africa. The larger part of the country is situated on highlands or hills, and it is only the Eastern part of it is situated on lowlands. The country is cross-sectioned by the Abyssinia Rift, being the northernmost part of the Great Rift Valley. It is commenced in the North, in the vicinity of the straits separating the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden, with a wide depression of Afar, separating the Ethiopian Highlands and Somali Plateau. Further on, it travels in the southern-western direction, forming a deep depression, the bottom of which is filled by the waters of lakes in several places. In the vicinity of Lake Turkana, next to the border between Ethiopia and Kenya, it is transformed into the East African Rift. Ethiopia’s variety is very well reflected in the programmes of our trips. Some of them emphasize getting to know the country’s nature, whereas others its culture and history. We also suggest going on a safari along Ethiopia’s wilderness areas and mountain trekkings. Our tourists stay in hotels, lodges or at campsites. Among offers with different prices, anyone can find something that can suit his or her budget.
