Considered as the cradle of humanity, with archaeological findings dating back more than 3 million years, Ethiopia is home to many archaeological discoveries and impressive cultural wealth with its 80 ethnic groups. The country’s landscape varies from deep depressions, the vast expanse of Lake Tana and the arid plains of Omo Valley to the sprawling city of Addis Ababa and the craggy peaks and valleys of the Simien Mountains. It is also the birthplace of the wild coffee plant, ‘Arabica’ and the origin of the Blue Nile, but Kamaroutes is here to give you more reasons to visit Ethiopia
