The west of Ethiopia is a beautiful roll of hills and valleys. Forests and rivers line the way to the very hot climes of Gambella. Close to the Sudanese border and home of the Anuak people amongst others. This region is a fertile and exotic treat. Kaffa coffee, gold and frankincense are all products traded in Mengesha Forest. Camping, sightseeing, historical churches and villages are all on the menu for the visitor. Also in the west is the large city of Jimma.
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.
