Leaving Addis we visit Ethiopia’s largest lake, Lake Tana, before we arrive at Lalibela, which is home to the Ethiopian Orthodox Christian churches that were built around the 12th and 13th century. These churches are unique in that they were carved from single monolithic rocks that only have the top surface on ground level, so the churches have been carved from the roof down. You have to see them to believe them.

Distance: 1100 km

From Lalibela we head north into the Simien Mountains National Park, this world heritage site is home to the Gelaba Baboon, Walia Ibex and the Ethiopian Fox, all extremely rare species.

  • To have an exciting motorcycle adventure you need three things. A company with great organisational skills and reliable bikes, a destination that will leave you wide eyed and exhausted and participants that are as thrilled to be there as much as you. These guys provides all three in spades and then some.

    Alan Shaw
  • Just finished Darwin to Melbourne going right down the middle & IT WAS AMAZING & a ton of fun!
    The care & organizational skills that went into orchestrating this trip was above & beyond expectations pretty well every step of the way.
    Truly the level of patience, consideration & understanding that Jerry & Bill showed to ALL of us, was off the charts (NOT an easy task when you put 15-16 people together from all over the world) and everybody seemed to have a great experience overall!
    Can’t wait to book another trip with them!!
    Thanks again to you guys for making it such a great trip!!

  • Just finished our Los Andes tour with them. What a fantastic trip and superb leadership. Way beyond our expectations. They really knew their stuff and made everything so stress free for us.
    If you are looking for a luxury adventure this is the company you want.
    Don’t hesitate for one moment- just do it.
