Encompassing four major historic sites: Axum, Lalibela, Gondar, and Bahir Dar, this famous route may be visited by air or road. If you have time for only the greatest highlights of Ethiopia, this is the route for you.

The most dramatic mountain scenery in Africa.

The great Rift, a huge fault in the earthís surface, extends through Africa from Mozambique across the Red Sea. In Ethiopia it is filled with unique wildlife, birds and astonishing scenery, leading to the alpine Bale Mountains and the mysterious caves and underground river of  Sof Omar.

A few hourís drive south of Addis Ababa, Awash's attractions include nearly 400 recorded bird species, a variety of mammals, and the opportunity to visit Ethiopian village life. Harer is the ancient walled city of 99 mosques, considered Islam's 4th holiest place.

The focus of interest in this sector is people; in particular the different ethnic groups along the Omo River, although there is also marvelous scenery and wildlife. 

 Surma Trekking

The unique Surma people, their rituals and dancing, in the midst of unspoiled wilderness.

Ethiopia is a paradise for bird watchers, with more than 850 recorded species of which 29 are endemic.

All of Ethiopia is to some extent "off the beaten track." The above sectors reflect the better known itineraries for visitors, but Travel Ethiopia knows and will be happy to take you to some less visited, less known places.

If you are fortunate enough to be visiting Ethiopia, but unfortunate enough to have just a day or two or three to spare, don't despair. Travel Ethiopia can provide a taste of the best of Ethiopia in a short time. You'll want to come back for more.
