Whether you’re a wide-eyed first-timer or a frequent visitor, Africa cannot fail to get under your skin. The canvas upon which the continent’s epic story is written is itself astonishing and reason enough to visit. Kyoko Ryoko program for visiting Ethiopia and Africa’s wildlife brings these landscapes to life, with a tangible and sometimes profoundly mysterious presence. This is a travel destination perfect to see where human beings first came into existence, as well as customs, traditions and ancient rites tie Africans to generations past and to the collective memory of myriad people. You will visit capital Addis Ababa and the National Museum with famous remains of Australopithecus “Lucy”.
Kyoko Ryoko is leading you through incense into a medieval world hewn from stone in Lalibela, and the line between past and present blur. Ethiopia’s storied and sovereign history has left its wide-ranging and fertile highlands laden with historical treasures, ranging from the ancient tombs and obelisks of Aksum to 17th-century castles and burnt-out Russian tanks. Ethiopia’s landscapes are no less dramatic, and range from the Simien Mountains National Park and Bale Mountains National Park, which proffer tremendous trekking and innumerable interactions with dozens of animals and birds seen nowhere else on earth, to the Danakil Depression in Northern Ethiopia, an enchanting and unforgivingly hostile environment offering extreme adventure. You don’t explore Ethiopia for a relaxing getaway, you venture here to be moved.
