During this trip the group will spend 1 night at a tourist class Hotel in Addis Ababa. We also have the use of day-rooms in this hotel during our final day in the capital. In Bahir Dir we have 1 night in a centrally located hotel where rooms are in separate bungalows set in a peaceful garden. In Gondar we stay 2 nights at a tourist class hotel. We stay 2 nights in Debark in a basic hotel (there are few accommodation options here) and 2 nights in Axum in a modern tourist standard hotel. We have 2 nights in the Gheralta Lodge in Hawzeen: please note that it is not always possible to confirm rooms at Gheralta Lodge. When this is not possible, you will be accommodated in a hotel in the town of Mekele. In Lalibela we have 2 nights in a comfortable tourist class hotel close to the town's major sites. It pays to remember that Ethiopia is a developing country and that accommodation can be basic in comparison to European standards. All accommodation is based on twin sharing. If you are travelling by yourself you will be paired up with another single client of the same sex. Depending on availability, it may also be possible to book a single room for the hotel nights. For single supplement please refer to the dates and prices page of the trip on our website. Hotels are subject to availability and prices may vary.
