“Walking was tough - an endurance test. Transport of luggage between hotels worked well. Documentation was not very accurate, but way-marking on the paths was good. We felt a sense of achievement on completing the walk.”

Is this trip right for you:
  • Part of Southern Ethiopia’s appeal is that it’s less frequented by tourists, which means that accommodation in this region may not be at the level of comfort which you will have become accustomed to during your Peregrine journey. We have organised the best available within this region and believe that this provides you with an authentic experience, and a wonderful opportunity to experience the local lifestyle.
  • Festivals and markets are a big part of Ethiopian culture and are a fascinating sight. Sometimes we will amend the order of the Jinka to Konso portion of the itinerary to allow for the group to partake in markets or local festivities.
If you have any question about this tour or need help with planning a trip, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us. We're ready to help.
