Ethiopia Active & Adventurous Vacations

  • The Rift Valley

Why is Ethiopia a great place for an active & adventurous vacation?

Ethiopia is a land of contrasts and extremes that offers a variety of activities for adventure-loving travelers. From ancient cities, to the warmth of its people, to astonishing rock-hewn churches, and to wild landscapes and waterfalls, the country is brimming with surprises.

What are the top active & adventurous vacations/activities to do in Ethiopia? 

History lovers should visit Lalibela, with its rock-hewn churches, caves, and tunnels. Nature enthusiastis will love Simien National Park and the Bale Mountains, home to the Ethiopian wolf, the gelada baboon, and the Walia ibex, all animals endemic to Ethiopia. In Omo Valley,  you can learn about many tribes totally excluded from modern life, each with their own cultures and customs. For something extreme, the Danakil Depression is the hottest place on earth (average temperatures reach 113 degrees Fahrenheit or 45 degrees Celsius).
