We are going to the original country. We are going to the country our ancestors walked out of to populate the world. We are going to the roots of Christianity.

We are going to Ethiopia.

We are going to Axum, the capital of the ancient Abyssinia, and its dusty markets.

We are going to see the churches hewn out of rock at Lalibela.

But we are going, also, to a country at a crucial and exciting moment. In a few short months, new young president Abiy Ahem has ended the 20-year war with Eritrea. 

Ethiopia is the hub of the African Union; Ethiopian Airlines is one of the world’s most impressive airlines; its dam project, largely funded by mum and dad Ethiopians, will export power far and wide.

We are going to the source of the Blue Nile.

This once in a lifetime Ethiopia trip is designed with partners Travel Directors and is an experience that will stay with you forever.
