Journey into the Horn of Africa
This 28-day trek begins near Debre Barkos, in northwestern Ethiopia. The journey is a mix of long drives across the country, boat trips on Lake Tana, Lake Champo and the Omo River, and daily hikes in the Simien Mountains and Mago National Parks. Among those landscapes, you’ll likely spot walia ibex, hippos, and gelada baboons. Trek in Ethiopia provides meals, overnight stays in hotels and lodges, and optional visits to cultural and museum sites.
