Ethiopia: Addis Ababa

Ethiopia-Addis-Ababa-Lucy-StudentsSurrounded by the countries of Eritrea, Djibouti, Somalia, Kenya, Sudan, and South Sudan on the Horn of Africa, Ethiopia is the most populous landlocked nation in the world.

Her other-worldly landscapes, ancient history, vibrant ethnic and cultural diversity, and delicious blend of tradition and modernity will surprise, challenge, excite, and transform you. The land of Injera, Tibs, Kitfo, coffee, tej, shoulder dancing, and Lucy is guaranteed to delight all of your senses and sensibilities.

Ethiopia is not a destination for the casual tourist. It is for real adventure-lovers… where the unexpected is commonplace… and where patience, persistence, openness, humility, and a sense of humor are richly rewarded. So, visit your travel doctor and get your vaccines, leave all your first-world expectations at home, prepare for some intestinal distress, and get ready to meet some of the warmest and most beautiful people in the world. By the way, as the scientifically-established launch pad of homo sapiens, a visit here is a genuine homecoming.

First stop: the capital city of Addis Ababa
