Ethiopia’s wealth of historic sites and an identity defined by its own history and diverse cultures rather than by colonialism is what distinguishes it from most other African destinations.

The well known historian Conti-Rossini called Ethiopia as “a country of mosaic of cultures.” For the basic reason that, in the country, 83 languages and 200 dialects are spoken and You find these people living in harmony with diversity – all having their own costumes, religions, rituals, festivals, hair styles, songs, dances and arts – all unique in their own way.
