Discover Ethiopia, one of the only nations in Africa never to be colonized
Ethiopia is a country with epic landscapes and historical wonders. It escaped colonialism, so most of the cultural identity is pure to Africa. The locals hold traditions that must be experienced by visiting its different cities. To see rock-cut Christian churches from the 12th-century, travel to the town of Lalibela. Explore the ancient ruins of the Kingdom of Askum with monolithic obelisks and royal tombs by the northern border, and spend time in the big market of the capital or visit the National Museum featuring prehistoric fossils.
