Discover Northern Ethiopia

Ethiopia draws travellers to its dramatic landscapes, fascinating history and rich culture, and new boutique and luxury lodges are opening up to support them. This is your chance to explore a lesser-known corner of Africa (before everyone else finds it!).

All the things you’re dying to ask but haven’t

We think you can split the experience 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.

"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!"


Humphrey Kelly, nemo Traveller



The capital city has a rich history and an emerging cosmopolitan buzz
Holy Trinity Cathedral, Addis Ababa
Top tip: be open-minded. Whether it is the cuisine, chatting with locals or some of the accommodation standards, expect surprises and accept them, it will be well worth it.
Experience some of the most jaw-dropping landscapes on the planet
Weather watch: November-April is the best time to visit Ethiopia, avoiding the rains and with more pleasant temperatures.
A hidden gem a short distance from Lake Tana
