Main Conference.

Dates

Forget what you thought you knew about Africa because Ethiopia is unlike any other nation on the continent.

Red-chested monkeys, churches carved out of stone, bones that rewrite the history of human evolution – Ethiopia is a country of endless intrigue. It’s one of the world’s oldest countries, has one of the oldest Christian religions, has one of the fastest-growing economies and is the only African nation to escape European colonialism. During this weeklong itinerary, we’ll unlock a living time capsule, exploring 12th-century rock-hewn churches and an ancient royal palace. Meet one of the world’s earliest humans in Addis Ababa, cavort with gelada monkeys in the magnificent Simien Mountains and get swept up in the excitement of the annual Meskel Festival.

Pre Tour.

Dates

Be front and centre of a real-life Gorillas in the Mist scene on our epic pre-conference tour of Uganda. Climaxing with a spine-tingling encounter with mountain gorillas, the journey also includes up-close experiences with wild chimpanzees. Visit the chimpanzee sanctuary on Lake Victoria’s Ngamba Island, see troops of chimps swinging through the treetops at Kibale National Park – and pay your respects to genocide victims in Rwanda.

Post Tour.

Dates

People are an intrinsic part of travel, and our post-conference tour of Ethiopia’s Omo Valley is a celebration of the country’s cultural melting pot. On this immersive cultural journey you will experience Africa at its rawest, meeting the ethnic tribes who lead a simple existence on the land, much as they have done for centuries. See the beehive-shaped homes of the Chencha people, explore an ancient Konso settlement, meet tribespeople adorned with beads, body paint and lip plates, and with luck, witness a bull-jumping initiation ceremony.
