Ethiopian Experiences

Come with us on one of these unmissable group tours

We use our local knowledge to schedule each group tour at a time of year when travelling is ideal, usually catching pleasant and relaxing weather, but avoiding the peak periods so as to make our tours personal and special.
Tours for 2024 and beyond

  Our latest tour news  

We are at last feeling positive and optimistic about

tourism in Ethiopia!

We have ourselves travelled widely in the country during the last few months,

experiencing the warmest of welcomes from the Ethiopian people, as always.

We attended the Timkat festival in Lalibela last January, with thousands of Ethiopians from all over the country celebrating their very special Epiphany period.

And we had an enjoyable small-group Ancient, Historic Ethiopia tour at Easter with enthusiastic guests. And as we write this latest tour news you are reading, we are sitting in warm sunshine with perfect blue skies in Hawassa, southern Ethiopia.

 

There are still undeniable tensions however, and we cannot yet tell you that things are quite back to normal as regards safe and reliable tourism in all parts of the country. 

But yes, we are very much looking forward to 2024 and we expect to see a huge recovery in the tourism sector, not only in Ethiopia, but in many places across the world. 

Looking ahead, we are at last going to put some dates in place for all of our upcoming group tours and we would invite you to sign up in a totally provisional way, without any finances changing hands at present. We shall then continue to watch and to assess the situation as we 2024 develops. 

But at the same time, don't forget that we can run any tour at any time if you prefer to travel either alone, as a couple, or as a group of friends or associates. Just get in touch with us via the form at the bottom of each page and we can discuss your requirements.

 

 Meanwhile, November saw us returning from our newest group tour, our hugely exciting 'Kenyan Experience', complete with its three-day Maasai Mara big game safari as its climax. We can honestly report that a good time was had by all.

And we have just finished four exhausting but thoroughly satisfying days in Olympia, London at the Destinations Holiday and Travel show alongside the biggest travel companies in the business.

You can see all the group tour details on the relevant webpages on this site.

Get in touch and get your name onto our guest lists.
