CHOOSING THE DESTINATION AND WHEN TO COME?

Ethiopia is a land of contrast - some of the places to visit are seasonal such as the Danakil Depression (November to February. Outside this time, it's too hot.) Coffee harvest is November. Following the rainy season, if the countryside's not green, then it probably never will be. When we're asked, "when's the best time to come? " we say, "Whenever it suits you. There will always be something interesting happening!".

Behind the Scenes

A morning outing, usually on Saturday 9am-12.30pm. To get you into places you would normally not find yourself. Sometimes the getting to the place is as interesting as the topic.
Our most popular BTS outings are:

BORN FREE
