Ethiopia and Rwanda Photo Tour now on sale - Feb 2015

My tour starts in Feb 2015 (20 - March10th) and travels from Addis Ababa to Bahar Dar, Gondar, Simien Mountains, Axum and Lalibela for 16 days of stunning scenery, amazing architecture and fabulous, friendly people.  The tour is organised through Academy Travel in Sydney and features some unique destinations and experiences that will make this a truly unforgettable travel experience. 
As we will be in the region, I decided to add on a Rwanda tour component at the end of the trip  (it's a relatively short hop from Addis to Kigali airport).  Of course you go to Rwanda to see the amazing mountain gorillas, an unforgettable experience, but the country is also a fascinating destination, with its tragic recent history contrasting with it's current determination to develop a stable economy.  Here are a few fantastic photos from Ethiopia taken earlier this year  - shot by my good friend Sue Burt.
