Ethiopia is a country of wild beauty and millenary traditions, it is a melting pot of populations that keep the ancestral culture alive and carry out, even today, elaborate rites of passage.

But Ethiopia is also a modern country with a capital, Addis Ababa, effervescent and efficient, and with university cities that shape the future management class like Arba Minch.

From a tourist point of view, the country can be divided into two areas: the North and the South.

In the North the presence of the testimonies of past civilizations prevails, this area is pervaded by a great sense of Christian religiosity, that reaches its maximum expression in the fantastic churches carved into the rock, such as those found in Lalibela.

To the South is the fascinating Omo Valley, this is the land of many ethnic groups, who still live according to traditional customs and habits and where life is influenced by ceremonies, rites of passage and ancestral and animist beliefs.

This is a journey that fascinates and amazes every day, here you meet friendly, hospitable and smiling people, the landscapes are enchanting and sometimes primitive, it has a millenary history, the food is excellent and varied and, moreover, this is the place where coffeewas discovered.

All that remains to do is to leave!
