Tour Ethiopia- program description

Journey begins in the capital Addis Ababa. Place although nothing special is known for its largest market in Africa and the National Museum which we also visit. After follows preparations with the jeeps which will be our best friends through adventurous south of the country. The trail starts in the UNESCO Tiyi and we continue to Arba Minch where we sleep. Place will serve as a starting point for exploring Lake Chamo and its surroundings. We go visit hippos and crocodiles living in the lake and to the village of our friends from the tribe of Dorsi. We will go to the crazy traditional market, meet local customs, dance with the locals, drink local spirit which will make us fly as bees between hives. We'll spend the night in special houses in the form of apiaries. Follows visit our other frends in the village​that coms from Konso tribe. Their villages are still very authentic and at arrival we will be welcomed by the head of the village where we also sleep. We visit the market square of Ari and Banna tribes from where we descend into the National Park Mago and Omo River Valley where we experience true African wilderness. Here live wildest tribe of all tribes - Mursi, the women (mostly) have a bowl in the mouth,  Karo tribe who lives on a beautiful spot above the river Omo and men have all times in their hands  Kalashnikov and Dasanech tribe which can be reached only by crossing River with canoe. In Turm or Dimeki the lovers of photography will come on their own  - here live Hamer tribe which is the most photogenic of all tribes. On the way to the village of Shashemene where live Rastafarians we turn out of the way and go to the beautiful El Sod crater which is the rest of the volcano. At the bottom of the crater is a lake where naked men (although Muslims) from it produce salt. From here we start our way back to civilization. Follows transfer to Addis Ababa where some companions go home but rest of use continue to the north.
Our way to the north we begin with flight to Bahir. Here we will be charmed by an ancient monasteries on Lake Tana, mighty Blue Nile Falls and the scenic drive to Gondar. Gondar the former capital is today starting point for treks in the Simien Mountains National Park offering spectacular views of the volcanic landscape, discovering canyons and socialize with thousands of monkeys - Geladas. After the trek we return to Gondar where we see a complex of castles protected under UNESCO and beautiful church of Debre Berhe. For the end we visit one of the eighth wonders of the world where we will ask ourselves how did they do it? Lalibela is a place where churches are carved into the living rock and fascinate every visitor.

As this journey involves a real adventure and is far from brilliant tourism where rooms are without category, camping under millions of stars and sometimes not luxury and we will hear a lot of strange voices we recommend a more strong-willed travelers.

About country

Ethiopia is certainly not considered as one of the most tourist countries of the world although in recent years a lot of work has been done on visibility of the country and infrastructure. But before "suit- casers" will arrive it will take many years which. Ethiopia is a tenth largest African country but in terms of population with 85 million people is in third place. It lies on the Horn of Africa between Eritrea, Sudan, Kenya, Somalia and Djibouti. It is one of the oldest countries in the world and here they found a couple of million year old remains of our ancestors so it is called the cradle of mankind. Once it was a rich country but today it is among the poorest in the world. Its people are proud and also very friendly. The official monetary currency is very stable Ethiopian birr. They speak more than 80 languages​​ but the official is Amharic. Of all the African countries has the most attractions protected by UNESCO which shows its rich culture and natural beauty. There lives approximately 63% of Christians and 34% Muslims. The best time to travel to Ethiopia is from October to March but because of its diversity this is not true for all areas. From all famous African flavors you can expect the intoxicating smell of coffee because the coffee is from Ethiopia and is one of the most reputed in the world.

Ojla Domen, Petra & druščina Char
že teden dni sem doma... z mislimi pa še zmeraj tam dol v črni afriki, kjer se je dogajalo.. tja dol sem odšla brez pričakovanj..zato pa dobila veeeelikooo lepih spominov na lepo rodovitno deželo, pridnimi ljudmi, ...prečudovito pokrajino, ki se spremnija iz km v km na sever v gorovje, vendar obdelano v skrbna polja, na jug prav tako v polja bananovcev, bombaža...in savano kjer kraljujejo živali in plemena.. tam dol kjer je življenje drugačno od našega vsakdanjika, zato mi tovrstna doživetja vedno znova pomagajo ko doma z drugačnim pogledom opazujem svet in ljudi okoli sebe,... . se nam je dogajalo kot se reče 100 na uro ...bila je prava avantura.... tudi z vremenom, ki je vse skupaj še bolj začinilo vso stvar. Hvala Petri & druščini Char, dobri ste!! Pa še kdaj...


Najprej še z moje strani sicer malo pozno ampak bolje zdaj kot nikoli: program Etiopije je bil super, letalski let iz Lalibele v Adis odličen, ker bi po trekingu še dva dni vožnje verjetno bilo malo preveč, jaz osebno bi bila še kakšen dan več na trekingu ampak to je verjetno bolj stvar okusa posameznika - na splošno super!!!!!

Zdaj pa k moji prošnji oziroma prošnji nas vseh, ki smo bili v Etiopiji novembra. Po dogodviščini se nas je v decembru enih par "Etiopijcev" uspelo dobiti na kuhanem vinu, kjer smo še malo strnili naše vtise. Ko smo debatirali o Etiopiji smo prišli tudi do teme revščina...ugotovili smo, da smo sprva mislili, da bo največ revnih oziroma tistih katerim bi podarili stvari, ki smo jih imeli s sabo največ na jugu pri plamenih, vendar smo se vsi strinjali, da verjetno največ pomoči potrebujejo otroci na severu v Debarku in v Simienu. Debata je stekla naprej in prišli smo do ideje, da bi jim radi na nek način pomagali. Strinjali smo se, da bi verjetno najbolj potrebovali obleke, obutev in šolske potrebščine , ki smo jih pripravljeni sami zbrati. Ker bi radi, da te stvari dobijo res tisti, ki jih najbolj potrebujejo smo se spomnili naslednjega....

Kako smo si mi to zamislili?
Zbrali bi stvari, ki bi jih z istim letalom s katerim bi naslednja runda letela v Etiopijo (sem vidla, da je za marec že potrjena tura) poslali v Etiopijo. Tam bi jih prevzela skupina s tabo ali Petro, jih naložila v bus, ki bi ga imeli za sever in potem razdelila na severju (npr. v Debarku v šoli ali v kaki vasi v Simienu). To je neka okvirna ideja. Seveda nas zanima če bi bilo sploh to logistično možno. In tu bi potrebovali tvojo pomoč!

Zanima nas predvsem:
- ali bi se bilo mogoče z letalsko družbo (verjetno imate Turkish) zmenit, da bi nekaj škatel zastonj ali za simbolični znesek pripeljali v Etiopijo ( moji starši so imeli podobno izkušnjo, ko se je vodič zmenil, da jo jim Air Emirati zastonj prepeljali šolske potrebščine za otroke v Tanzaniji)
- kakšna bi bila lahko teža tega tovorja (2, 3 škatle...več?)
- če bi bila naslednja runda "Etiopijcev" pripravljena te škatle vozit v busu (koliko jih lahko gre v bus) in jih potem tudi razdeliti med otroke, predvsemv Debarku

Verjetno sem še na kaj pozabila - predvsem pa nas zanima, če je naša ideja praktično izvedljiva in če nam lahko ti kot organizator Etiopije pri tem kakor koli pomagaš?

Hvala že v naprej od nas vseh...
