Other interesting tour programs:

    • Trekking in the Bale Mountains, an unspoilt mountain-wilderness with forests, moor land, extensive heather-fields, rivers, streams, alpine lakes where more than 60 mammals and 260 bird species have their home. This is really a relaxed "back to nature" experience. Short treks of 2 or 3 days, long treks of 7 - 10 days and everything in between is possible.
    • Trekking in the Semien Mountains with its impressive beauty and dramatic views, described as the most marvellous of Abyssinian landscapes. Here you can climb the highest peak of Ethiopia: Ras Dashen (4543 meter). Treks from 2 - around 10 days can be organized.
    • Bird Watching Tour (10 or more days) brings you to te most beautiful places in Ethiopia to observe the amazing, beautiful variety of endemic (23 species) and non-endemic birds (totally 835 species).
    • Dire Dawa and Harar, the thousand year old walled Muslim city, which is considered by some Muslims as the most important pilgrimage place after Jerusalem, Mekka, and Medina. A city full of monuments which speak of a rich and eventful past (you can add this trip to tour programs of North- and South Ethiopia).
    • OTHER ADVENTUROUS ACTIVITIES:
  • Cultural trekkings where contact with the locals is the main goal. We organize walking trips in Konso and Dorze area or to villages of Hamer-, Ari- and Mursi tribes. Spend the night(s) camping by the village or even in the house of a local family.
  • Trekking in Gheralta mountains (North-Ethiopia) with visit(s) to the "hidden gems of Gheralta"-wonderful rock hewn churches, most of the time hewn out on mountain tops so the climb to such churches is an adventure in itself
  • Trekking in the beautiful Lasta mountains around Lalibela with visit to rock hewn church(es) in the mountains and villages where you eventually can sleep at home by a family
  • Mountain bike tours: around lake Awassa or lake Langano or in Bahir Dar and surroundings.
  • Game drive (combined with walking) in a National Park or protected area such as Awash National Park, Nech Sar National Park, Kafa Biosphere reserve (www.kafa-biosphere.com), Guassa Community Conservation Area (www.guassaarea.org) where you sleep in a lodge, guesthouse or on a campsite
