Ethiopian Inbound Tour Operator

Ethiopian Adventures is a Class One inbound tour operator as defined by the Ministry of Tourism.

Both Ethiopia and Sudan (where we do extension tours) are full of fascinating places to visit. Consequently, no two tours are the same. We start out by listening to our clients to find out what they are really interested in. Is it culture or geography, activity or relaxation. Then we mould the tour, as best we can, around the wishes of our clients.

As a result, we don’t have any kind of standard tour. Every trip is based around the emphasis that is put on culture, wildlife, geography or landscapes. The time of year of the visit plays a big part in where we travel and what we see. In some parts of the country, there can be intense heat or cold at certain times. We try to recommend the most comfortable tour possible since nobody wants to visit in heavy rain or high humidity.

Our vehicles

Key to everything is our client comfort when on the road. Most of our trips are undertaken with specially converted Land Cruisers and Hilux Hard Tops so as to offer the possibility of getting off the beaten track from time to time. We don’t do white mini-buses! We are the only Ethiopian tour operator to operate 5 seater safari vehicles with large windows, a fridge, reinforced suspension and individual power sockets (220v and USB) at every seat. We are part of the Simien Lodge group who are currently the only tour company in Ethiopia to win international tourism awards (Skal and African Responsible Tourism Awards).

Most Popular Questions

A few frequently asked questions about some of Ethiopia’s most famous tourist attractions, but there is much more to explore and discover in this culturally and geographically diverse country.

Ethiopia is a multilingual country with over 80 different ethnic groups, each with its own language. However, Amharic is the official language and is widely spoken across the country. Other major languages include Oromo, Tigrinya, and Somali.

The currency used in Ethiopia is the Ethiopian Birr (ETB). It is abbreviated as "ETB" and is further subdivided into 100 smaller units called "santim".

Ethiopia is known for its rich history, culture, and natural beauty. Some of the famous tourist attractions include Lalibela, a UNESCO World Heritage site known for its rock-hewn churches; the Simien Mountains National Park, a stunning mountain range with diverse wildlife; the ancient city of Aksum, known for its obelisks and ruins; and the Danakil Depression, one of the hottest and lowest places on Earth.

Ethiopia's climate varies greatly depending on the region, but generally, it is characterized by a tropical monsoon climate with distinct wet and dry seasons. The highlands tend to have a temperate climate, while lowland areas are typically hot and arid.

Ethiopia has a rich and ancient history, dating back thousands of years. It is one of the oldest civilizations in the world, with a history that includes the Aksumite Empire, one of the great civilizations of the ancient world. Ethiopia is also known for being one of the few African countries to resist European colonization, maintaining its independence throughout much of its history.

Ethiopian cuisine is diverse and flavorful, with some popular dishes including injera (a sourdough flatbread), doro wat (a spicy chicken stew), kitfo (minced raw beef seasoned with spices), and shiro (a chickpea stew).

The Lalibela churches are a group of rock-hewn churches located in the town of Lalibela in northern Ethiopia. These churches were carved out of solid rock in the 12th century and are renowned for their unique architecture and religious significance.

Lalibela is often referred to as the "New Jerusalem" and is a major pilgrimage site for Ethiopian Orthodox Christians. The town is named after King Lalibela, who is believed to have commissioned the construction of the churches to create a "New Jerusalem" for Christians who were unable to make the pilgrimage to the Holy Land.

The Simien Mountains National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage site located in northern Ethiopia. It is known for its stunning landscape, including rugged mountains, deep valleys, and unique wildlife such as the endemic Walia ibex and Gelada baboon.

Aksum is an ancient city in northern Ethiopia that was once the capital of the Aksumite Empire, one of the great civilizations of the ancient world. It is known for its obelisks, royal tombs, and other archaeological sites that testify to its former glory as a major trading hub and center of civilization.

The Danakil Depression is a geological depression located in northeastern Ethiopia, near the border with Eritrea and Djibouti. It is one of the hottest and lowest places on Earth, with a harsh and otherworldly landscape characterized by volcanic activity, salt flats, and colorful mineral deposits.

In addition to Lalibela, the Simien Mountains, Aksum, and the Danakil Depression, Ethiopia is home to many other fascinating attractions, including the rock-hewn churches of Tigray, the ancient city of Gondar with its castles and churches, Lake Tana and its monastic islands, and the Omo Valley with its diverse ethnic groups and rich cultural heritage.
