Private tours to Ethiopia provide a chance to explore the lesser-visited areas of the region. With Cox & Kings you can travel further afield into the Simien and Bale mountain ranges to search for spirited Gelada monkeys or the rare Ethiopian wolf, south through the Rift Valley to visit coffee plantations and Unesco world heritage lakes, and onto the tribal Omo valley; to meet the local tribes and visit a lively weekly market.
Each of these itineraries are flexible and can tailored to your needs. Please contact us if you would like to create a bespoke travel itinerary to Ethiopia.

We have highlighted the standard of accommodation featured on a tour immediately above the tour itinerary.
In some cases, tours include some departures in one category and some in another: you can see and select the different tour types under ‘tour variations’. For these tours, the itinerary is generally the same and just the standard of accommodation varies. However, if there are any variations in the excursions included, these are shown within the itinerary.
Superior: Most Cox & Kings tours fall under this category and are based in 4- or 5-star accommodation, or the best available.
Luxury: These tours will usually feature 5-star de luxe accommodation throughout.
Standard: Simpler in emphasis, these itineraries typically feature 3- and 4-star accommodation throughout.
Discovery: This type of holiday is best suited to the hardier traveller, as it will typically include some quite basic accommodation, possibly longer and rougher road journeys and, in some cases, more arduous activities, such as trekking.
