Bahir Dar, Amhara, Ethiopia

Welcome to Ethiopia ! I have been working as a tour guide through out Ethiopia for over 8 years.

I am very proud to offer you a top quality tours that are customized for a variety of interests In Northern Ethiopia, Addis abeba , Bahirdar , Gonder , Simen Mountains , Axum , Lalibela .

Dedicated to providing a quality, eco-friendly and value for money holiday experience to Ethiopia.

As an eco tourist you can experience an undisturbed local culture through our cultural tour . The trip will introduce you to some of the fascinating and colorful ethnic people and their culture along with the rich wildlife and beautiful scenery of Ethiopia.

We educate our local community and stakeholders about having a role and promoting conservation and raise their awareness on environmentals.

We create local employment and use local products and services which help to reduce the unsustainable exploitation of natural resources.

Respect local cultures; traditions; the socio-cultural authenticity of host communities, conserving their built and living cultural heritage.

We encourage traditional values, and contribute to inter-cultural understanding and tolerance .

I am enthusiastic and inquisitive - I enjoy meeting new people and sharing in cultural experiences. My aim is to make guided tours and walks relaxing , informative , fun , flexible, get closer to details and enjoy personal conversations geared directly to your interests. You stop being a tourist and become a guest. It's like having a friend to take you under their wing and show you what only the insiders know.

As a proud Black African, I sometimes feel it is my responsibility to live in a way that shows the world an Africa that is not the case of hopelessness people often expect. To rise above history's injustice and build a future full of ambition, vitality and growth. Abandon self-defeat, and embrace positivity.

Let me show you the real Ethiopian History , Culture , Landscape and Daily Life style . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Short descriptions of the primary tourist Attractions of Ethiopia

Lake Tana
Lake Tana is the largest lake of Ethiopia and located at a distance of 560 km from Addis Ababa. As the outgoing river of the Lake is the Blue Nile, the Lake is considered the origin of the Blue Nile, one of the two main tributaries of the Upper Nile. Known to the ancient Egyptians and Greeks, the lake has an long history of exposure to the ancient world, and from a very early age, it has been one of the centers of Christianity. The lake houses more than 20 churches and monasteries.

Gondar

For two centuries the walled royal enclosure, Fasil Ghebbi, in Gondar served as the capital of the Ethiopian Empire. Initiated by the Ethiopian emperor Fasilides around 1635 and expanded by his successors, Fasil Ghebbi, surrounded by a 900-m-long wall, contains Indian and Baroque style palaces, churches and monasteries, the likes unknown anywhere else in Sub-Saharan Africa

Simien Mountains National Park

North of Gondar lies the Simien Mountains National Park, with the fourth highest peak of Africa, with some of the most ragged escarpments of Ethiopia and becoming an increasingly popular destination for mountain trekking. The park is home to some extremely endangered animal that only occur in Ethiopia, like the Ethiopian Wolf and the Walia Ibex, a wild goat, the gelada baboon and the Lammergeier.
