"Ethiopia offers a very different wildlife experience: it is home to some of the world's rarest and most endangered mammals such as the Ethiopian wolf, Walia ibex and Swayne's hartebeest, all of which number only some 500 individuals, globally. Other endemic mammals include the unmistakeable Gelada monkey and localized, furtive Bale monkey."

Tigray Region Holidays

In semi- arid northern Ethiopia, this region includes some well- known sites such as Axum with its remarkable stelae (obelisk) park; Yeha with its pre-Christian 'Temple of the Moon'; the Adwa Mountains and the Gerhalta plains region, closer to the town of Mekelle, with its rock-hewn constructions and fantastic, mountain scenery 

Mekelle can also serve as an access point/ airport for adventurous visitors who want to make trips into the otherworldly Danakil Depression in the Afar region, with its many active volcanoes.

While at present accommodation in Axum is rather limited, the Gerhalta Lodge near Hawzien is deservedly sought-after and worth a night or two. We can also arrange home stays in the TESFA Community Trekking sites in the Tigray region - ask us for details.
