This unique 10-night cultural exploration will take you to the best of Ethiopia’s unmissable sights, as well as a few hidden gems.

Visit the Ethnographic Museum to learn about the country’s rich history, and discover the unique fusion of traditional music, Afro-funk, and jazz known as Ethio-Jazz in some of the city’s best night spots.
Next, take a two-hour flight to the historic village of Lalibela, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where you can walk through the ancient village and marvel at the subterranean churches hewn from the rock itself. Unleash your inner foodie and learn how to make traditional dishes like Wat or enjoy a local coffee ceremony. Finally, take a thrilling hot air balloon ride over Lalibela for a new perspective.
