Ethiopian Highlands Safari

Ethiopia has a uniquely fascinating culture, and on this trip we'll begin to explore it in the ancient capital of Gondar. This is overlanding at its finest - a pioneering expedition through rugged country, taking in magnificent sites such as the churches of Lalibela, hewn out of rock, or beautiful monasteries on Lake Tana which house the mummified remains of ancient emperors.
