Axum, or Aksum, is a city in northern Ethiopia named after the Kingdom of Aksum, a naval and trading power that ruled from the region ca. 400 BC into the 10th century. The kingdom was occasionally referred to in medieval writings as "Ethiopia". See it with www.ExcitingEthiopiaTours.com

Erta Ale
Located in the Danakil Depression (or Afar Depression) in the Afar Region of northeastern Ethiopia, it is one of the driest, lowest and hottest places on earth. At best the region is 77 °F and at worst 118 °F, and the area is beset with drought as it has almost no rain for most of the year. 100 feet below sea level, the area has no trees, and little in the way of roads.

African Portraits by Mario Gerth
Beautiful and dynamic portraits by Dutch photographer Mario Gerth. Beautiful is an understatement in this case, Mario’s subjects span from different regions across Africa, from countries such as Namibia, Niger, Kenya, Mali and Ethiopia. He has quite a collection, it was hard to decide but here are some of our favorites. See it with www.excitingethiopiatours.com

The Karo and Mursi tribes
The Karo and Mursi tribes, Lower Omo Valley, South Ethiopia. The Lower Omo River in south west Ethiopia is home to eight different tribes whose population is about 200,000. They have lived there for centuries. However, the future of these tribes lies in the balance. A massive hydro-electric dam, Gibe III, is under construction on the Omo and when completed it will destroy a fragile environment and the livelihoods of the tribes, which are closely linked to the river and its annual flood.

High church
In a cave on a mountaintop in northern Ethiopia I meet a Christian monk reputed to be 140 years old. Even if this were true, he is markedly young compared to the relics hidden around him in these holy mountains. A few steps away from his hermit hole is a wooden door set flush against the rockface. It is the entrance to St Mary Korkor, one of more than 100 churches buried in the mesas of Tigrai, in Ethiopia’s far north.
