Short Tours:

If you prefer to travel in a group made up of just your own friends or relatives you can book a private group departure  on the majority of our holidays. Maybe you belong to a cycling or walking club who would like to venture in Ethiopia for  an organised holiday together. Or you have a group of friends who’d like to summit a mountain. If you get a big enough group together this can sometimes work out as a cheaper option to travelling on our standard group trips!
