Testimonials

Daniel And Co., August 2012

For us this trip has been an exceptional experience for discovery of the Omo peoples. We have been able to understand challenges of the local population and we have never imagined that such people were existing (after such a longtime) still ! The great culture of our guide has helped us much; we have also appreciated the professionalism of the driver (It is very important!) and we have appreciated the small dishes prepared for us by the chef. The most “positive side”: Total freedom with caring and efficient team (guide, driver and chef), perfect logistics in place; the team has perfectly realized the interface with the local population. The “weak sides”: We have seen no weak sides to complain about. Only one list to be modified: do not put an inflatable mattress at 2 places under the tent since it is very uncomfortable. 2 mattresses at 1 place is preferable.

Jacques And His Friends, October 2012

As per our choice, Yared Mulugeta demonstrated that he is an unparalleled organizer. From time to time, he has become a precious guide, a trilingual interpreter at least, very efficient, always attentive, too concerned to make our stay an unforgettable one. He has mastered adapting himself to and profiting from arising opportunities. He has given to our trip a very particular originality which contrasts with the offers of other voyagists, without hesitating to modify the time table so as to enable us participate on such and such ceremonies or visit the residents. He has succeeded to transmit his love for his country and his countrymen to us too. To say few about our expedition to the Danakil, cautious drivers who not only understand their profession well but also participated as good trekkers, an unmatched chef … What to say of the “bead” on an Ethiopian cake, the Dallol, its formation and colours! What can we say about our military escorts and the Afar police who mastered well how to be ignored and who stretched their helping hands during our ascension to the Erta Ale volcano! Very good local guides who narrate you the history of Ethiopia and its future! Escorts giving attention to minor things, such guardian angels allowing you to climb the steps at Abuna Yemata without any danger! The bus driver of our next trip, turn by turn a driver, a waiter, a medical standby, a musician artist and at the same time a comedian, was at disposal as a true Ethiopian. Breathtaking landscapes with the effect that one is obliged to think him/herself at Paradise! The Semien Mountains Park and the perspective from its 3260m height! What to say of Axum, Gondar, Tana and the second bead Lalibela! The logistics perfectly matches with the hotels, the restaurants ranging from small bar to super establishment where meal ends in fanfares with songs and dances. A detour within a tavern where tej (hydromel) is served and the local consumers turn it into cabaret. Comedy related to war events, then invitation to dance for ferenji to the music of tramped bidons used as tambour. All this ends with a farewell meal plus its traditional dances and great friendship which ties us to Yared and to all members of his army. Wish takes a day, and the southern peoples? We must come back … Yes, but that must be with Yared and his army.

Phillipe, October 2012

Efficient organization … Southern Ethiopia is something to discover before the post-civilisation… The guide is very good; the driver as well. He stops when we want, available and agreeable at the same time during our conversation and our contacts…..All simply said, BRAVO! The most “positive side”: A country that must be seen and is a perfume of adventure. The “weak sides”: A little bit shorter; but it is due to our own fault.

Alain,

Superb country of good variety of peoples and landscapes The most “positive side”: Well-balanced, very professional and respectful services

Danièle Monie, November 2012

The Addis Ababa – Bahr Dar journey was a little bit longer and we had to depart earlier so as to make some stops for photos. Ethiopians have very good hospitality and are very smiling. We have appreciated Israel [who was] a very good driver and always smiling. The discreetness, perfect French and rich culture of Emmanuel, our guide, the attentiveness of Yared, a group appropriate to confront whatever situation, (without forgetting Fabienne) The most “positive side”: Very good framework, be it the driver, the guide, Yared who was keeping contact with us every day, Fabienne who has also assisted us well. The “weak sides”: Sometimes, they had to plan for meal earlier rather than dinning at noon

Roland, January 2013

Total discovery of a magnificent country and very nice people; loss of heart on the Semien Mountains, Lalibela and Wendo Genet; kind, charming, intelligent, attentive and discreet guide. His French however must be improved though we were compensated with his goodwill. The most “positive side”: Perfect organisation; no waste of time or exaggerated price. The “weak sides”: Payment for alcohol drinks during meal time: complicated and a little bit mean compared to the paid price. It’s however ok with the drinks taken without meals.

Yvette Mediamone, January 2013

In my travel, I was alone and I rented a 4WD with a guide-driver. I divided my trip between the North (Lalibela, Gondar & Lake Tana) and the South (Omoland). I didn’t like Lalibela; everything was racketeering for the tourists; only the way the churches were constructed was fascinating. Gondar is magnificent and the people are very nice. Basically, it was however the South which exited me: the ethnic groups are yet authentic; and if there is a big gap between our “world” and theirs, it is only the simplicity and the wisdom. They still have got those qualities and values that we do not have any more. Regarding this local travel agency we chose, they are professional people, were very attentive and have always responded to my expectations. Truly, if I come back to Ethiopia, no doubt I will contact them. It was one of the most interesting travels I have ever made. The most “positive side”: It’s one of the most authentic voyages that I’ve made; the guide-driver was very competent and had precious experience (20 years). Furthermore, he speaks many dialects and this allowed us ……. The “weak sides”: Problem of stopping “everywhere”; since the accommodation was too mean, there was always unexpected lack of water and of W.-C.
