History and Culture

Ethiopia - Gondar

Ethiopia is a country where one can combine remote and wild places with ancient history and culture, thus providing a truly unforgettable experience.

It is also a land of contrasts and extremes – some of the highest places on the African continent are found here, such as the Simien Mountains, and some of the lowest, such as the Danakil Depression with its lunar-like landscape.

The dry season from October to May is generally the best time to visit, but the wild flowers of September and early October can be spectacular.
