Get to know Ethiopia's natural wonders in this 9 day tour which will show you everything from towering mountain peaks to tumbling waterfalls. Begin in Addis Ababa, the country's thriving capital, before travelling out to Awash National Park for an unforgettable safari experience. From there, you will travel to the Bale Mountains, one of Ethiopia's most remote and wild national parks. Upon arrival in Dinsho, the headquarters of the national park, you will begin a four day trek through the landscape - scaling peaks and soaking in hot springs along the way. The trek ends at the Sanetti Plateau, home of the elusive Ethiopian Wolf, where you will have the chance to spot some of the country's rarest wildlife.
