Ethiopia boasts landscapes of stunning beauty and dramatic contrasts from the soaring pinnacles of the Simien Mountains – the roof of Africa – to the plummeting depths of the Danakil Depression, the lowest – and hottest – place on earth.
You will find cloud forests such as those in the Kafa Biosphere Reserve - the sole home of many wild coffee varieties - active volcanoes, hot springs, cool underground caverns, rugged gorges, spectacular waterfalls, rivers and shimmering lakes. The largest, Lake Tana, is the source of the life-nurturing Blue Nile.
Make time to visit Ethiopia, and discover for yourself the origins of so much history and culture - still vibrantly alive in a landscape of dramatic beauty. Come and you will witness how Ethiopia is original in many ways.
