Supplier: M17566

We are a small tourism safaris company offering tourism and safari holidays in Ethiopia. We tailor make our tours and safaris to suit our clients. We prefer small groups and independently minded travelers. We also provide an instant social connection into Ethiopian society for those people who want person to person contact with people living in Ethiopia.

The scenery is diversely beautiful. Simplified, the landscapes could be divided into highlands, lowlands, undulating plains, valleys and desert areas. In reality such a division is not so clear-cut. Mountain ranges plunge to valley floors. Rivers, lakes, waterfalls abound. Forests give way to savanna. Grasslands merge into deserts. You can almost choose your own scenery! The hilly rugged settings of northern Ethiopia contrast sharply with green tablelands at the center and the lush wooded forests of Illubabor in the western part.

Our itineraries are planned around you. The activities we mention are merely an indication of the range of options available. We suggest a program. The choice is yours. We try to plan our itineraries to suit your interests and pace. We are at the service of the independently minded traveler for business or pleasure.

 1  Phillip and Sylvia Davies / Tour guide
We would always recommend this guy for sure, we had a great time with the southern tribes of Ethiopia.

 2  James Gibbons / Southern Ethiopia
We went with M17566 this year and very much enjoyed Zawdu\'s patience and enthusiasm for the job. He is a safe driver guide and offers a reasonable price.

We went with Zawdu to the south of Ethiopia ans we had a very good time for 3 weeks. We felt very close to this tour guide at the end of the tour because of the interesting ups, some days down because I felt ill during the tour - malaria. But Zawdu helped me through it. Chris, my partner also appreciated his driving skills and we felt totally safe. Yes would recommend him anytime. Honest guy.

Best regards,
Helen Tennor

 4  susan arbit and john geritz / 30 day tour with Zawdu
We just returned from 30 day north/south tour, using land cruiser all the way. We journeyed more than 3000 miles over some pretty unbelievable "roads". Zawdu's expert driving was really appreciated. He is also knowledgeable about the history and culture of his country and he provided us with a wonderful experience. He took us to places he and his friends patronize and showed us how they live. We did all the tourist spots, and so much more. All the way, Zawdu was most solicitous of our care and ... view more comfort. We thank you, Zawdu, and highly recommend your tours.

 5  Gary Semles / Ethiopia Trekking Trip
Enjoyed every moment of the trip with Zawdu. He is a thoughtful knowledgable tour guide who seems to know his stuff. South of Ethiopia was especially interesting.
