North Route by 4WD

Castle-of-King-Fasil-Gondar-1024x766

This is a great itinerary that visits the very best of the northern historical circuit. Starting off from Addis Ababa, we drive to the North, enjoying the most spectacular scenery, all the way to Lalibela, with its amazing 12th c. rock-cut churches, and then travel to “African Camelot”, to see castles of Gondar. Then we visit the isolated island monasteries on Lake Tana, home to treasured religious artefacts and strong monastic traditions. This 8-day tour gives a fantastic insight into the cultural heritage of this spectacular nation.
