Nature, Wildlife & Cave Church Tour from Addis Ababa (and more)

US$90,00

Overview
On this day trip away from the hectic life of Addis Ababa, you will get to experience the impressive Debre Libanos Monastery, beautiful mountain and countryside scenery, the famed ‘Portuguese Bridge’ built in the 1890s, the Nile Gorge with its abundant endemic birdlife and gelada baboons and much more. Please note spotting the Gelada Baboons can be a matter of luck, as they tend to be quite mobile from day to day.
Highlights
  • Guided day trip makes it easy to see Ethiopia outside the city
  • Visit top countryside attractions in the Entoto Mountains
  • See the Debre Libanos monastery, Portuguese Bridge, and more
  • Guide provides insight into each attraction you might miss on your own
  • Tons of photo opportunities
  • All-inclusive transportation makes it easy to get around
What to Expect
Your tour begins with morning pickup from your Addis Ababa hotel. Head into the Entoto Mountains and admire views as your driver navigates the twisting mountain road. When you reach the Entoto summit, snap some photos and enjoy free time at a vista point.
Then, continue to Debre Libanos monastery; tour the historic churches and visit the attached museum. When you’re done looking around, eat lunch at a restaurant with views of the Jemma River Gorge (included).
After eating, walk to Ras Darge’s Bridge, also known as the Portuguese Bridge—a historical bridge popular for its views of the surrounding valley.
Time permitting, you might visit the Blue Nile Gorge, climb the St. Teklehaimanot cave, and visit with Oromo people to learn more about everyday life in the mountains.
Tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.
