Want to discover a lost world? A place of hidden wonders, ancient kingdoms, strange animals and breathtaking views. This 20 day adventure will take you to some of Ethiopia’s many undiscovered attractions, including Four UNESCO Heritage Sites. It will immerse you into community, culture, dance, food and language. When you join this adventure, you will also be helping to fight poverty and 50% of our profits go to keeping disadvantaged children in school. You will also get a chance to meet the students we sponsor and visit the charity we support during your adventure.
We are a social enterprise. This means we place the same emphasis on doing the right thing and making a positive impact in the communities we travel to, as we do on making a profit. To prove it, we’ve graphed how your fee will be spent during this adventure.
We are proud to report that 47% of your fee will be spent in Ethiopia, stimulating local business, creating local jobs and supporting local communities. Another 7%, which is 50% of our profit, is invested back into local initiatives and grass-roots charities.

Malaria is a low risk in the areas you will be travelling because most are above 2,000m. To further minimise the risk:
1. Discuss malaria prevention medication with your travel doctor
2. Sleep under a mosquito net (provided) and wear long clothing and mosquito repellent.
You should visit a travel doctor at least 3 months before departure. At a minimum, you will need proof of your Yellow Fever vaccine to enter Ethiopia and to re-enter Australia.
Please discuss medications with your travel doctor at least 3 months before departure. At a minimum, we recommend you bring medication for malaria and travellers diarrhoea. If you occasionally use specific medication, you should also bring that.
Travel medicine is very specific and we highly recommend you see a specialised travel doctor. If you don’t have a travel doctor, you can find on the Travel Medicine Alliance website – https://www.travelmedicine.com.au.

“Every dollar was worth it. I could have done every single day two times over.”
“Going on a holiday that makes a difference is something truly special. To meet the young person that I sponsored, to visit their home, family and friends, and to create some amazing life long memories with them is just another level.”
“I was so amazed by how friendly the people were. Having Monk show us around his country was definitely a highlight and the temples were incredible.”
“AOL’s style of holiday is less about ticking off the bucket list, and more about immersion in a different culture – it left me with memories more poignant than any selfie-opportunity!”
