A Trailblazing Ethiopian Adventure

Ethiopia draws travellers to its dramatic landscapes, fascinating history and rich culture, and new boutique, luxury lodges are opening up to support them. Planning a trip here still takes that extra element of knowledge, and that's where we come in. We've curated an all-encompassing itinerary taking in the highlights of Northern Ethiopia and split it into three sections: stunning landscapes, intriguing history and fascinating local culture. The bonus of incredible, unique wildlife and the up-and-coming city of Addis Ababa make this a wonderful destination. From mountain treks to hot air balloon rides over the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Lalibela... This is your chance to explore a lesser-known corner of Africa before everyone else finds it!

"Travelling to a country like Ethiopia, where tourism is still a growing industry, I was hesitant about going through the whole process of booking the trip myself. Nemo did all the hard work for me, the booking was seamless and the trip was one I will never forget, for all the right reasons!"
