THE ONLY COUNTRY NEVER COLONISED IN AFRICA

ETHIOPIA! A WONDERFULLY VIBRANT ANCIENT COUNTRY THAT MAINTAINED IT’S ROYAL FAMILY AND INDEPENDENCE THROUGH THE MASS-COLONIZATION OF EVERY SQUARE METER OF AFRICA. A COUNTRY WHERE ORTHODOX CHRISTIAN AND MUSLIMS LIVE IN HARMONY. A COUNTRY RICH IN TRADITION, VALUES, COLOURS, WONDERFUL CUISINE AND STUNNING NATURAL BEAUTY. IT IS ALSO A COUNTRY WHERE THE PEOPLE ROSE UP UNAIDED TO OVERTHROW BLOODY COMMUNISM.

ETHIOPIA IS A REAL WOW AND EYE-OPENING EXPERIENCE. THE BIRTHPLACE OF COFFEE WHICH IS CELEBRATED IN EVERY TRIP TO A FRIEND’S HOME. FOR TOURISTS IT IS AN INCREDIBLY CHEAP WAY TO EXPLORE AMAZING PLACES AND COME BACK WITH PRICELESS EXPERIENCES. PLEASE COME INSIDE AND HAVE A VIRTUAL JOURNEY THROUGH THIS MAGICAL COUNTRY.
