With Omo Valley Extension 26 December 2018 to 14 January 2019

Discover the lost world of the Ethiopians on our new Journey beyond our usual Asian horizons. Ethiopia, an inexhaustible source of wonder for travellers - a sprawling country of ancient African civilization, colourful festivals, breath taking landscapes, diverse tribal culture and amazingly friendly people. Dating back to the very beginnings of humanoid evolution, Ethiopia is old…old, beyond imagination. It is the land of the Queen of Sheba, a place of legendary rulers, fabulous kingdoms in ancient histories. With more than 80 different ethnic groups living together with traditions as old as humanity itself, Ethiopia is a melting pot of cultures.

Zen Oriental Journeys appoints tour managers and leaders who have significant experience in management at senior education department levels and are experienced in professional tour leadership. Ethiopian Horizons will be led by Norman Paini. Norman has been teaching for 42 years for the Education Department of WA. He is Head, Department of Humanities and Social Sciences at Morley Senior High School and been involved in many school trips as Tour Leader to visit their sister schools in Japan, Italy and China.
