Nature, Wildlife and Cave Church Tour from Addis Ababa and more.

On this day trip away from the hectic life of Addis Ababa, you will get to experience the impressive Debre Libanos Monastery, beautiful mountain and countryside scenery, the famed ‘Portuguese Bridge’ built in the 1890s, the Nile Gorge with its abundant endemic birdlife and gelada baboons and much more. Please note spotting the Gelada Baboons can be a matter of luck, as they tend to be quite mobile from day to day.

    Stop At: Debre Libanos Monastery, North West of Addis Ababa Seimien Shewa Zone of Oromia Region, Debre Libanos 1000 Ethiopia

    Founded by Ethiopian Saint Abune Tekle Haymanot, within a steep riverine canyon in 1284, Debre Libanos later became the political centre of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, and is where Emperor Lebna Dengal received the first Portuguese mission to Ethiopia in 1520. The Italian army destroyed the original church in a 1937 massacre that claimed the lives of 800 monks, deacons and lay worshippers. The modern church, its domed roof decorated with stained-glass windows, remains an important pilgrimage site.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Portuguese Bridge, Near the Blue Nile Water Fall, Debre Libanos Ethiopia

    Although the locals believe the stone-arch Portuguese bridge was built by the Portuguese in the 16th century, it was actually built in the 1890s by Ras Darge in the old Portuguese style. The narrow span makes a spectacular picture and the gushing (in the rainy season) cascade just below it is very impressive.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Debre Libanos Monastery, North West of Addis Ababa Seimien Shewa Zone of Oromia Region, Debre Libanos 1000 Ethiopia

    You will see the Jemma River Gorge, which is the stating point for the African Great Rift Valley and is one of Ethiopia’s most dramatic stretches of road that starts its serpentine descent to the bottom of the Blue Nile Gorge, 1km below. The gorge is accessed by a road that offers spectacular views, and a pair of bridges cross the river.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Entoto Maryam Church, North Shewa, Addis Ababa Ethiopia
