Ethiopia, the oldest independent nation in Africa, is a land of stunning natural beauty, a rich diversity of culture and geography that will fascinate the visitor.

The welcome that comes from the mosaic of a people with over 80 different languages and as many cultures are warm and spontaneous. The attraction of Ethiopia are of world renown, and the development of the country as the foremost tourist destination in North East Africa has opened up Ethiopia to a new generation of tourists, to whom a visit to the land of the Queen of Sheba, the birthplace of the Blue Nile and the cradle of mankind was previously just a dream.

The climate is dependent on the physical terrain and its position close to the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean, but for much of the year it is warm and pleasant in low-lying areas and cool and bracing in the highlands. There are two principal seasons, rainy from June to September, (although the sun still shines on most days), and dry for the rest of the year. Just perfect for discovering the riches of Ethiopia.
