A cultural experience like no other!
Have you ever heard of Lucy? She is the world’s oldest known hominid remains, dating back 3.2 million years, and she can be found in Ethiopia. See Lucy and many other prehistoric wonders on our 10-day trip through Ethiopia!
We will experience much of what Ethiopia has to offer, making our way by land and air. Our trip begins by enjoying the luxuries of city life. While in Addis Ababa, the nation’s capital, we will explore the National Museum, learn the skillful art of making Injera, and delve into the culture by observing and ceremonies, traditions, and the general daily lives of locals from the various ethnic groups. For a dose of adventure, we will hike the natural craters of the region and take a dip in nearby hot springs.
Then we will fly to the South to visit the country’s native tribes. These tribes can be characterized by their distinct dress, such as the Mursi tribe who have a plated-lip, or the Karo tribe who adorn themselves with white chalk and unique piercings. It will feel like we’ve traveled to another world, visiting tribes who are indigenous to the Nile. We’ve been granted permission by the tribal elders to camp in a local village overnight (although the option to stay back the lodge will be available).
Many people believe Ethiopia is where humankind originated. See the “Horn of Africa” for yourself and travel with us this December!
