Ethiopia and Uganda, located in north eastern Africa and in close proximity, are both massively misunderstood by Australians. Most of us recall with horror the dreadful famine of Ethiopia and the brutal regime of Idi Amin in Uganda, but both of these traumatic events were more than 30 years ago.
Today, both countries share surprising economic growth and political stability. They are both land-locked 'gems' of the African continent that offer breathtaking scenery, outstanding cultural experiences, and wildlife.
Ethiopia has the richest historical heritage in Africa. There's a sense of 'otherness' about Ethiopia that is quite intoxicating. It is the only sub- Saharan country with tangible historical remnants stretching back to the ancient Mediterranean civilisations and was the only country to emerge uncolonised from the 19th century 'Scramble for Africa'.
Culturally, historically and scenically, Ethiopia is an extraordinary experience, confounding every expectation. Travellers often arrive expecting poverty, finding instead a vibrant colourful country marked by a sense of infectious pride in its history and culture.
Winston Churchill famously referred to Uganda as the Pearl of Africa - how true! Astride the Equator, the country is home to a unique physical landscape of rivers, lakes and stunning mountains, providing the ideal habitat for its diverse wildlife.
Where else but in this uniquely lush destination can you observe tree-climbing lions, track both chimpanzees and mountain gorillas through rainforest undergrowth, then navigate tropical channels teeming with hippos and spectacular birdlife? Less environmental pressures and tourist numbers make Uganda's natural conditions ideal for wildlife viewing.
Another highlight of Uganda is the source of the famous Nile River, exiting from Lake Victoria to begin the long journey northwards to the Mediterranean via Egypt. Discovered by John Speke in 1862, the source of the Nile is yet another experience to cherish. This exclusively designed tour provides a golden opportunity to be your very own modern day explorer.
Discover these two truly magnificent African 'gems', where you will be welcomed with heart-warming hospitality by the people, and experience the awesome grandeur of the environment.
Travel Masters looks forward to you joining them on what could truly be a life changing travel experience.
