Itinerary Map
Day 1: Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
Upon your arrival in Addis Ababa, our representative will meet you and accompany you to our hotel. The remainder of the day is at your leisure, including dinner on your own this evening.

Day 2: Sightseeing in Addis Ababa

Your tour of Ethiopia’s geographic, political and cultural hub begins at the National Museum of Ethiopia, where you will admire artistic treasures and many precious archaeological finds, including the nearly complete fossilized skeleton of "Lucy," a human ancestor that walked upright and lived 3.2 million years ago. Next, visit the Ethnological Museum, where an impressive display of artifacts and handicrafts from across Ethiopia’s regions and peoples provides insight into the country’s rich ethnic diversity. Housed within Emperor Haile Selassie’s former palace, the museum displays a vast array of religious crosses, triptychs and murals.

After lunch at a local restaurant, visit the massive and ornate Holy Trinity Cathedral, one of Ethiopia’s most important places of worship. Numerous statues and a large copper dome decorate the exterior. Grand murals, stained-glass windows, two beautifully carved thrones and two huge granite tombs holding Emperor Haile Selassie and Empress Menen Asfaw adorn the inside. Your day culminates with a visit to Sabahar, a local development project that is introducing silk cultivation to Ethiopia’s cotton spinning and weaving traditions. Inspired by the country’s ancient weaving customs, Sabahar creates exquisite handmade accessories and linens using locally sourced silk and cotton. Founded by Kathy Marshall, a Canadian by birth but a 20-year veteran of Ethiopia, Sabahar is a pioneer in the silk industry and one of the only companies in the world exporting Ethiopian silk products.

After an exceptional day exploring the city, return to the hotel and join the group for a welcome dinner where your Expedition Leader will brief you on what awaits during the rest of your Ethiopian adventure.
