We specialise in tailor-made holidays and trekking in Ethiopia - with a fantastic trekking outfit in the Simien Mountains and a thorough knowledge of the lodges and hotels of this fast developing country.
Travelling around Ethiopia is now a very much different prospect to just a couple of years ago. Quality small hotels are blossoming around the country and private tailor-made travel (rather than group travel) is in our opinion, now the best way to see Ethiopia whatever your budget. Where once a hot shower was a rarity, you can now see some of the most incredible cultural, historical and natural sites in Africa from the comfort of excellent lodging such as the Kuriftu Spa on Lake Tana and the Bale Mountain Lodge.
The Simien Mountains offer some of the most stunning trekking in the whole of Africa. The National Park boasts truly incredible mountain scenery and is teeming with endemic wildlife. We are the leading provider of high quality treks in the Simien Mountains and pride ourselves on the quality of our guiding team and cooks, whether your are camping or staying in comfort at the Simien Lodge.
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.
