October in Ethiopia

Snapshot collage – Ethiopia helicopter safaris, October 2014

The incredible landscapes and ancient Christianity is perhaps Ethiopia’s most enticing qualities. There is nothing more compelling than walking within the stratified red sandstone mountains, pinnacles and plateaus all around, whilst visiting ancient 3rd and 4th century rock-hewn churches.

We hope you enjoy these #instagram collages highlighting Ethiopia’s specialness – the diverse landscapes, people and the churches. The helicopter is a big part of these trips too. It allows us to see so much and enjoy spontaneous touch-downs in some of the most remote and scenic locations. Tapping into the expertise of local guides gives a rich insight into the history and deep-rooted Christian way of life that keeps the ancient rock-hewn churches active.
