Why Ethiopia should be topping Your Travel Bucket List

Why Ethiopia should be topping Your Travel Bucket List

As the global travel market is offering more and more destinations across the globe, travelers are starting to appreciate more and more genuine places with cultures and landscapes still unaffected by the growing tourist flows inevitably affecting the authenticity and the lifestyles of the local communities.

Thinking about destinations that are still fairly unaffected by the modern tourist flows the one that stands out immediately is Ethiopia and here is why:

Cultural Authenticity
Believed to be the cradle of human civilization, Ethiopia is the only African country never to be colonized, still preserving a lot of remains of its ancient past, an authentic brand of Christianity and indigenous tribal communities still keeping their century old lifestyles and traditions. From the modern capital Addis Ababa, home to world-class museums and hectic streets to the UNESCO protected ancient capital Aksum to the castles of Gondar, Ethiopia is boasting a cultural heritage that will reveal you the true spirit of Africa!

Unique Landscapes
It is one of Africa's most beautiful countries and its landscapes are impressive with both their scale and beauty. You can trek more than 3000m above sea level (the Simien and Bale mountains) or visit the lowest place on the African continent, the Danakil Depression. Hiking the Simien Mountains is a world-class experience which offers stunning views of awe-inspiring jagged peaks and sharp precipices, as well as the chance to spot some endemic wildlife such as the rare Ethiopian wolf and the elusive Walia Ibex!

Local Cuisine and Coffee culture
Ethiopia’s strong cultural heritage is reflected in the food, which is wonderfully diverse, full of color and flavor, as well as containing many healthy ingredients. As the birthplace of the coffee plant and a huge producer of the bean, Ethiopia is both an exporter and active consumer of the West’s favorite drink. Traditional coffee, or bunna, is brewed in a clay pot over coals during a specific local ceremony.

Ethiopia is offering endless possibilities for tourism so in case you are having a hard time planning a visit we are happy to offer you a well tested 12-day comprehensive itinerary covering all the essentials of this amazing African country!
