The visitor numbers are growing by 10% each year, the Simien Mountains National Park (a prime tourist site) has experienced a huge increase in the number of tourists from 5,000 in 2007 to 24,000 last year.

Ethiopia is a beautiful country with warm friendly people and we offer guest tours to introduce you to the country. The tour provides exposure to the richness of Ethiopia – its culture, music, food, religion, historic sites, wildlife and of course it’s hugely welcoming people. At the same time you are supporting the education of children in the country with all proceeds from tours going directly to our work in Ethiopia.
