Since our establishment more than a decade ago, we have involved and will continue to involve our clients in our local communities support initiatives on a participatory level. These development projects endeavor to empower our communities on their own local initiatives in what we call “Responsible Tourism and Transforming People Lives.”
We are always eager and proud to display to the world the hidden beauties of Ethiopia and to tell the story of its people from our ancient human ancestor “Lucy” to the present modern people.
The safety and security of our visitors, travelers and tourists is always our top-most priority. Our drivers, tour guides and porters are well equipped with safety and security measures, risks management, first aid and medical evacuation skills that come to play when needed. We work very closely with the flying doctors and local community nurses in Ethiopia to help our customers during any accidents during the tour.
Our tour prices are mainly based on the budget travelers, but we can also arrange for medium and luxury tour packages.
