Exclusive Ethiopia’s friendly and professional team makes planning your Ethiopian holiday effortless.
Ethiopia has such unusual and distinctive sites, it can be confusing.
You want to see the ancient sites but there are castles, island monasteries, rock-hewn churches and more – how do you choose which to visit? You want to meet the distinctive tribes but the whole of the Omo Valley is dotted with tribal villages. You want to explore the mountains with their unique endemic species but Ethiopia isn’t called the rooftop of Africa for nothing. You want to discover the Danakil Depression but how do you manage in this dramatic yet startlingly hot region?
That’s what we’re here for.
The Exclusive Ethiopia team knows every site in Ethiopia. Mulie, co-founder of Exclusive Ethiopia, has been guiding visitors to all regions of the country for over ten years. Tamara, co-founder of Exclusive Ethiopia and prolific travel writer, covers Ethiopia for a number of international publications. Their knowledge of Ethiopia gives the Exclusive Ethiopia team the edge. We’ll listen to what you want, suggest some options, and create the precise holiday that suits you.

Exclusive Ethiopia’s sister company Karibu Kenya offers the same friendly and dedicated service in Kenya. Tamara, author of the Karibu Kenya Accommodation Guide, travelled the length and breadth of the country checking out every destination, activity, hotel and resort. The highlights of Kenya include the game filled national parks including the world famous Maasai Mara, swathes of white beaches such as award winning Diani Beach, historic sites including the old towns of Lamu, Malindi and Mombasa, Africa’s second highest mountain Mt Kenya, the stark northern deserts surrounding Lake Turkana, and the lush green hills of western Kenya.
Exclusive Ethiopia offers a selection of yoga and wellness retreats all over East Africa. In collaboration with the most experienced teachers in the region, we have put together a collection of enticing retreats in exotic locations. With Vinyasa, SUP, aerial, acro-yoga, nutrition, silent retreats and more, our collection of retreats gives you the opportunity to enhance your yoga, relax and rejuvenate at idyllic destinations. Should you wish to combine a retreat with a tour of Ethiopia’s historic north, or a trip to the Omo Valley, we’d be happy to arrange this.
Karibu Kenya and Exclusive Ethiopia are committed to ensuring that all holidays we organise benefit the wildlife, the local communities and the ecosystem. We offset the domestic flights and road transfers of all who travel with us through Wildlife Works, we organise training for local guides, and we support schools and literacy projects around both countries.
Ethiopia: such a diverse, curious place, visit if you can. Ask Exclusive Ethiopia to arrange your trip. I can’t say enough about how wonderful Tamara and Mulie are.
We visited Lalibela and it was a dream come true! Our driver Jonnie was the best ever. You must see St. George for yourself: pictures do not do it justice. Mulugeta was extremely knowledgeable and very professional. I am planning a trip to Danakil salt lakes and will only use Exclusive Ethiopia for my tour needs!
We just came back from an amazing trip across Ethiopia with Mulie and the team. An unforgettable adventure within the Omo Valley tribes, in the Danakil depression and the rock hewn churches of Gheralta and Lalibela!
Mulugeta is passionate about his country and people, and his enthusiasm was infectious. He has an excellent knowledge of Ethiopian culture, history, geography, farming, flora and fauna, religion, tourist needs and behaviour.
Amazing guide, very considerate, and very good English. The cook was a magician and I liked his emphasis on hygiene. The trek was amazing!
I cannot thank Mulugeta enough for his professionalism, helpfulness and general demeanour. I don’t think I’ve ever had a tour operator – besides Tamara – with this level of expertise and skill set.
The tour was really fantastic. All the guides and drivers were great. Emmanuel, the driver, was amazing, and anticipated our needs before we even knew we had them. Kim, our guide in Gondar, was really impressive in knowledge, and in hospitality and friendliness. We couldn’t recommend her highly enough.
