Ethiopia boasts a history and geography that mark it apart as a destination. In only nine days we were able to get a strong sense of the culture, food, history and nature – which is a testament to YellowWood Adventures who arranged the trip for us. We were spoiled by our guides and porters along the way, as well as the delicious food that greeted us at the end of every day’s trek. Better still, no other tourists in sight!”
