Extraordinary Ethiopia Tours will meet all clients arriving at the airport regardless of arrival time.  For morning flight arrivals you may begin your tour after checking into your hotel.  For afternoon or evening arrivals, you may begin your tour the following day.  

Day 01: ​Addis Ababa

The tour starts with a pick up from your hotel/airport, and then drive to the National Museum of Ethiopia for visiting the long age history of Ethiopia and the oldest human ancestor, Lucy. ​Set within Haile Selassie’s former palace and surrounded by the beautiful gardens and fountains of Addis Ababa University’s main campus is the enthralling  Ethnological Museum. Even if you’re not normally a museum fan, this one is worth a bit of  your time – it’s easily one of the finest museums in Africa. Before lunch, drive to Holy  Trinity Cathedral Church which has unique architectural style

 Immediately after a relaxed lunch, drive up to Entoto Mountains, the best location to  observe the panoramic view of the capital.  It is also a historical place where Menelik  II resided and built his palace.  It is notable as the location of a number of celebrated churches, including Saint Raguel and Saint Mary (​Maryam Church​). The return drive will   be via Piazza with an enroute visit to St. George Church and Menelik II Square towards the largest open air market, Merkato. This site will enable you have an experience of shopping    in Ethiopia. The tour ends with a drop off at your hotel.

We start the day with a last “game drive” in the National Park. After a meal in the breakfast we shall drive south to beautiful Lake Langano from Addis Ababa , a rift valley lake surrounded by arid acacia savannah.
