If you make it to Ethiopia, Danit will facilitate your tour to the nine sites registered as the World Heritage Sites by UNESCO.

Axum

The city of Axum emerged several centuries before the birth of Christ, as the capital of a state that traded with ancient Greece, Egypt and Asia. With its navies sailing as far afield as Ceylon, Axum later became the most important power between the Roman Empire and Persia and for a while, controlled parts of South Arabia.

Bet Giorgiese at Lalibela

The maze of churches of Lalibela offers a tremendous variety of styles: Grecian pillars, Arabesque windows, ancient swastika, Star of David carvings, arches and Egyptian-like buildings. The main clusters of 11 churches are located in the village center. The Rock-hewn churches of Lalibela were inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1978.

Fasil Ghebbi

In the 16th and 17th centuries, the fortress-city of Fasil Ghebbi was the residence of the Ethiopian emperor Fasilides and his successors. Surrounded by a 900 meter long wall, the city contains palaces, churches, monasteries and unique public and private buildings marked by Hindu and Arab influences, subsequently transformed by the Baroque style brought to Gondar by the Jesuit missionaries. The Fasil Ghebbi is inscribed as a World Heritage in 1978 by the UNESCO.

Harar- The Walled City

In the 19th Century Harar (or Harer) was one of those "ultimate destinations", like Timbuktu and Mecca, whose dangers and inaccessibility, both physical and cultural, fascinated European explorers.

Chilada Baboon at Simien Mountain

This national park has been described by the World Heritage as "Massive erosion over the years on the Ethiopian plateau has created one of the most spectacular landscapes in the world, with jagged mountain peaks, deep valleys and sharp precipices dropping some 1,500 meter. The park is home to some extremely rare animals such as the Gelada baboon, the Simien fox and the Walia ibex, a goat found nowhere else in the world". The Simien National Park was registered as a World Heritage by the UNESCO in 1978.

Awash River
