Ethiopia is a delight to visit as a country. This book concentrates on the north, which is beautiful, green and mountainous. Ethiopia is in the heart of the horn of Africa, but it also possesses a vibrancy, an ethos that is truly unique, that cannot be found in another country on this amazing continent, nor the world. It offers adventure in many different forms, warm and friendly people, exhilaration and above all experience.

Read about trekking in the Simien Mountains and visiting the UNESCO Rock-hewn churches of Lalibela. Information on travelling by plane and bus.

I visit:

Addis Ababa, the vibrant capital.

The Simien Mountains – stretching up to 4500 metres, these stunning mountains are a highlight of any trip to north Ethiopia, and provide some wonderful and affordable trekking.
