Group Tours - How it works

  1. The first step is to understand when you want to travel. You don't need exact dates, just a rough idea of the months you're looking at. Ethiopia is a large country, so some regions can't be visited year-round. 

  2. Next, take a look at our listed tours below to get a feel for where you'd like to visit. We've set up our group tours so that you can jump across different tours to explore different regions. Of course, you don't have the same flexibility as with a private tour, but there's still ample opportunity to explore far and wide. 

  3. Now that you know the when and the where (kind of), take a look at our departure schedule and get in touch with us. We'll do all the heavy lifting for you, from helping you decide on the tour(s) that's right for you, to getting you booked in and ready to go. Brilliant!

Brilliant Group Tours

Historic North Circuit

The Historic North Circuit is our most popular trip and takes you across the Northern cities and into the Simien Mountains. Every year, we run a New Year Special group tour, which is the Historic North Circuit at its absolute finest. If you're travelling in January, you'll want to join the New Year Special.

Months available: 

Jan- May

Sep - Dec

Omo Valley Adventure

The Omo Valley Adventure takes you into the Lower Omo Valley where you'll be introduced to a completely different way of life. The Omo Valley is accessible year-round. 

Months available: 

All year

Classic Danakil Tour

The Classic Danakil Tour works great as a standalone adventure, but can also be a fantastic add-on to a longer trip in Ethiopia. The Danakil is one of the hottest, most remote regions on the planet, so can't be visited year-round. 

Dates available: 

Jan - May

Oct - Dec

Community Trekking Tour

The Community Trekking Tour is a personal favourite of ours, offering a unique insight into rural Ethiopia through trails off the beaten track. 

Dates available: 

Jun - Aug

Best of Birding

Our Best of Birding Tours are best run as a group to keep the costs down. The tour is available almost year-round, with some areas becoming too inaccessible during the rainy season. 

Dates available: 

Jan - May

Oct - Dec
