Some of the finer destination spots Bencho Tour Ethiopia has to offer are:

  1. Danakil Depression and Afar Triangle

The Danakil depression in the Afar triangle is an amazing tour into the history of mankind, (sometimes known as the cradle of mankind), not to mention the beautiful colorful pools.  The danakil depression is known as the cradle of mankind because it is reputed to have the lodes humankind fossil ever found on earth.

If you book this tour, come prepared for some of the hottest year-round weather on the earth.  The winter time average is 77F during the day and summer average temperature is 118F.  The rainfall is very slight as well, with on average 4-6 inches of rain per year.  The Awash river does flow through the depression in the winter time only and dries up in the summer.

3. Highlands and Historic Route

The rugged highlands of Ethiopia boast one of the most ancient lands on earth. This tour will reveal some of the remaining structures and artifacts from the earliest traces of man.

Additionally, the word coffee can be traced to here in the southern Highlands of Ethiopia. This is where the Kingdom of Kaffa reigned over the land thousands of years ago. Coffee was grown here and exported to nearby lands of the Arabian Peninsula for sale and trade of goods.
