In addition, our experienced guides and drivers will accompany you on your journey through Ethiopia while acting as a link between you and the culture, history and landscape of this beautiful country. Imagine Ethiopia guides, drivers and staff have intimate knowledge and background of the entire country and the local communities. Our company comes from a small, familiar atmosphere of travelers, which we feel is conducive to offering the very best in personal service and advice.

Tour Programs – Itineraries

imagine Ethiopia Tours & Travel will be pleased to prepare customized itineraries and price quotes according to our clients’ requirements. We suggest and design tour programs for every client. All itineraries have been personally researched by our executive tour operators in Addis Ababa.

Imagine Vehicles & Equipment

We are equipped with a fleet of vehicles suitable to Ethiopia's varied climates, road conditions and terrain. For every traveler who chooses to go overland from site to site, enter national parks on bumpy roads or go down the roads less traveled, imagine Ethiopia Tours & Travel offers durable, luxurious and reliable 4WD Land Cruisers and 4WD mini-buses. For those groups wanting to stay on the paved roads, we offer our larger coaster buses, each in excellent condition and comfortable for larger groups.


Because much of the overland tours are spent traveling between sites, villages and cities, we have top-of-the-line vehicles and care about the comfort of every visitor.
On those off-road journeys, imagine Ethiopia Tours & Travel provides clients with quality, functional camping gear including tents, sleeping bags and mattresses for adventure tours to the Simien and Bale Mountains or camping tours in the South Omo Valley and Danakil Depression.

Flexability

We are very flexible and open to every client’s suggestions to ensure our clients enjoy a perfect holiday. Our purpose and principle is to work with each client, family and group individually. We encourage our clients to discuss their expectations, interest, budget etc., to be able to arrange a custom made tour just for you.

Imagine Core Value

Our mission is to satisfy our customers by providing them the opportunity to fully experience Ethiopia’s diverse culture and attractions. Our ultimate goal is to make client satisfaction a reality through quality, professional tour services unparalleled by any other tour operator in Ethiopia and Africa.

"My wife and I worked with Bewnetu to plan a 25 day trip that encompassed the north, east, and west of this spectacular country.

"We had about two half days to travel. The tour guide, Alex Habtewold, was very flexible and willing to work with us so that we could see as much as possible. His dedication to the job showed through his concern for our welfare and enjoyment. Will definitely use them again to explore more of this very beautiful country."

"I’m about to write a testimonial for a man I’ve never met and for a trip we never took…. My wife and I had travelled through Gujarat for 10 days and had flown on to Israel. One week into our Israel leg I was hospitalized for 5 days with a serious bacterial infection from a minor cut in India. On the advice of our Insurers we had to cancel all arrangements with Imagine Ethiopia, only 6 days before our arrival in Addis Abba, and flown home to Australia. Although not obliged under the terms our travel arrangements, Bewnetu Shambel managed to cancel all of our 20-day arrangements and recover around 20% of our fully paid trip. He is still showing an interest in our wellbeing 5 weeks after the cancellation! If you want to meet a person whose ethics will restore your faith in humanity, travel with Bewnetu and his organisation. Our only regret besides not travelling through Ethiopia [this was our second attempt] was not meeting Bewnetu… one day."
