Africa East & South between Gondar and Addis Ababa - NEW!

Overlanding is the only way to see East Africa! We have been leading the way in African overland expeditions since 1981, so take advantage of our years of experience and come with us as we include all the must-see attractions as well as heading into the wilds, well away from the usual tourist trail. The extraordinary country of Ethiopia has a uniquely fascinating culture and history, and on this overland trip we'll explore the incredible areas of the north of the country. This is overlanding at its finest - a pioneering expedition through rugged country, taking in magnificent sites such as the rock-hewn churches of Lalibela, the beautiful monasteries on Lake Tana, and the phenomenal ruins of the ancient Axumite Kingdom in Axum. We'll visit the Blue Nile Falls and go trekking in the rugged Simien Mountains, home to some unique wildlife such as the Ethiopian wolf and the gelada. The scenery on our drive days through northern Ethiopia is truly some of the most spectacular you'll find in the world! We start our trip in the historic town of Gondar and end in the thriving capital of Addis Ababa - join us for an unforgettable and comprehensive exploration of northern Ethiopia!
