Ethiopia is an intriguing and inviting country, one which asks to be explored and admired by anyone lucky enough to set foot on its soil. Mysterious, deeply traditional and breathtakingly beautiful, it is home to a staggering number of UNESCO world heritage sites, enchanting mountains, fascinating 17th century castles and shopping opportunities unlike anywhere else in the world. Its location at the confluence of civilisations and important trade routes developed a rich history, culture and heritage which it is still strongly felt today. This unique culture is framed within the rugged beauty of some of the finest mountain scenery in Africa.
