Heading south in Ethiopia is an intriguing and magical experience. The topography of the Great Rift Valley and the naturally sculptured scenery is simply breathtaking. You will journey through the Rift Valley Lakes past Shashemene. Turning slightly to the southwest, you will reach Arba Minch situated on the west side of Lake Abiata and Lake Chamo. You will then have the opportunity to meet the people whose way of life remains as remote and unchanged as the land in which they live.
Geographically Ethiopia is stunning. The landscape is dominated by the dramatic Ethiopian Highlands with peaks of 4000m or higher. The country is bisected by the Rift Valley, which starts at the Red Sea, to the North East, and continues south to Mozambique in southern Africa.
