Ecotour & Travel Agency for Ethiopia

Our  is a highly professional Ethiopian Ecotour & travel Agency is run by members being university trained and whom all have thoroughly traveled each part of Ethiopia as resident scientists. No other travel company matches the knowledge and field experiences of Ecotravel Ethiopia. Not a single corner of Ethiopia that one of us has not been to. This is not the case for other travel agencies in Ethiopia, who usually only know the beaten path. We know Ethiopia like nobody else in the world because we have been there for our research and expeditions. Based on that knowledge, we developed a variety of fantastic itineraries led by some of the best professionals of the country.


Why consider booking our our Ethiopia Culture & National Parks modules? Because for the same price, our tour gets you to ALL cultural places Ethiopia is so famous for, and on top of that, you get to see up to 12 National Parks/Reserves accompanied by a conservation forester. There is nothing similar on the market. As Ethiopia can be combined with other East African countries, we organize tours in modules. Destinations Overview: Historical Circuit; Danakil Depression; Eathern Route; Simien Mountains; Bale Mountains; Southern Parks Safari; Gambella; Addis Ababa BUT WAIT: if you buy your international ticket with Ethiopia Airlines, they will sell the internal flights at a price that you can't even ride the bus for. But you MUST plan it all in one package and making changes will be very costly. So let us help you plan your entire trip for an incredibly low price!
