We are a leading specialist in Ethiopia with our own trekking outfit in the Simien Mountains and an encyclopaedic knowledge of the country. Whilst traditionally a very challenging country to travel through, we have recently seen a step change in comfort levels with some superb small hotels and lodges on offer. Whilst accommodation is still not on a par with elsewhere in Southern and Eastern Africa, travellers can now expect to explore this magnificent country's incredible heritage and natural beauty in relative comfort.
Our most popular itineraries tend to balance the cultural highlights of the Northern Circuit with some time amidst wildlife in a comfortable wilderness lodge in the Simien Mountains or Bale Mountains. All of our trips in Ethiopia are tailor-made private arrangements, so by far the best way to start planning is to give us a call and we can develop an itinerary for you. Our prices are displayed excluding International flights, but we have excellent rates with Ethiopian Airlines (please ask for a quote).
Our itineraries are carefully designed by our experienced travel designers based on years of experience and customer feedback. For a custom itinerary tailored to you, please enquire giving as much detail as possible on your brief.

My husband and I took their standard "highlights of northern Ethiopia" tour. From the moment of our first contact with tourdust, they were extremely helpful and professional. Lisa was very responsive to any queries we had. We felt confident going to this new country with them arranging it. We were met at each point by great guides, Alex in particular was fantastic, overseeing the whole tour from Addis. Accomodation was very good - some lovely hotels in beautiful places. If I were to do anything different, it would be to add on an extra night in Gondar. The drive from the Simien mountains was long and we were too tired to go out again to see Gondar. We are both in our 50s so younger people may not have the same issue but just something to consider if you don't want to cram everything in to a tight timeframe .
Thoroughly recommend this company.
