Ethiopia is the tenth largest country in Africa with a surface area of 1.2M Square Kilometers. It lies in eastern Africa, between the Equator and the Tropic of Cancer, in a region known as the Horn of Africa. Bordered by five countries, it is landlocked due to its separation from Eritrea.
We-Ethiopian have our own way of telling time: the first hour of the day corresponds with the rising of the sun and the last hour is around sunset. The day is divided into two parts, each lasting twelve hours. due to its location near the equator, Ethiopia allows nearly twelve hours sunlight during any season.
The Calendar is another unique feature-it has 13 months. Using the Julian Calendar, Ethiopia has twelve lunar months of thirty days, plus one month of five or six days, depending on the lap year. The Julian calendar began 7 years and 113 days after the Christian age, making the first day of the New Year September 11.

Ethiopia enjoys complete freedom of religion. However tow religions are professed by the great majority: Christianity, as practiced by the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church and Sunni Islam.

  • Sileshi is excellent in his talent to bring real authentic life into every day. It was a pleasure for us with his help to meet people, to talk with them and to learn about the way of living.We are frequent travelers and have been in many countries. It would be a pleasure for us if we could find such a guide as Mr. Tesfaye in other countries.

  • Dear Sileshi. Margit and I do thank you for the wonderful trip we had in Ethiopia in October 2017.The magic colours on Erta Ale and in the Dallol region were unbelievably great! The second week of our tour in Lalibela and in the Semien NP were amazing as well.

  • Sileshi is very knowledgeable in all aspects of Ethiopian society and was very keen to share with us the history, the culture and customs of the various ethnic groups we visited (Konso, Hammer, Mursi, Karo and more), the food, and the music of his country. We can only praise his kindness towards us and his patience as a guide. We are also very grateful to our resourceful driver Tensaye.... Read this review
