The rock-hewn churches of Lalibela are Ethiopia’s most spectacular monuments and a visit here on a trip to Ethiopia is a must. The authenticity of a visit to Lalibela is what most travelers long for. Explore the churches, admire the ingenuity and find yourself in the mix with the daily worship as you meander through caves, tunnels and passageways to get a glimpse.
The landscapes of the Danakil Depression are otherworldly. In Northern Ethiopia lies one of the hottest and most inhospitable places on earth, Danakil, and with its sulfur lakes, volcanoes, salt pans, acidic pools, geysers, and luminescent yellow and green ponds, visitors are in for a treat. Arguably one of the most unique and remote travel destinations on earth, expect camping, jeep drives, expedition-like adventures, and an experience unmatched.
The history that’s been unearthed in Axum, and perhaps more importantly the history that is yet to be unearthed in Axum, makes for an insightful stop on any Ethiopian journey. From ancient stelae to the Church of Our Lady Mary of Zion, which claims to house the Ark of the Covenant, a trip to Axum showcases the grandeur and influence of Ethiopia’s rich historical and cultural past.
The island monasteries on Lake Tana and the light trek to the Blue Nile Falls make Bahir Dar a must stop on the historic route of Ethiopia.

BEST TIME TO VISIT:
Kenya is divided by the Equator and enjoys a tropical climate. It is hot and humid at the coast, temperate inland and very dry in the north and northeastern parts of the country. The hottest period is in February and March and the coldest in July and August. The long rains occur from April to June and short rains from October to December. Rainfall is sometimes heavy and tends to fall in the afternoon and evenings. Conditions in East Africa are often ideal, although the coast can be humid and there are hot, desert conditions at arid sites like Olorgesaillie and around Lake Turkana. But most of your destinations in Kenya boast temperatures between 21-32 degrees celsius by day, and rarely below 12 degrees celsius at night. Even during the short rains, the humidity is low for much of the day, and the skies clear.
