Because We're Locals
Walia was founded by John Riley and Sintayehu Zerabruk, after the two men met as employees working for an Ethiopian tour company in Addis Ababa. Their years of experience and knowledge work to give you great insightful trips, filled with memorable encounters and great access to culture and people.
Options and Variety
Walia offers you 16 scheduled small group tours with a combined 50 different start dates, so no matter what you are looking for - or when - in Ethiopia, and on our wildlife safaris in Kenya and Tanzania - we have it for you.
Walia has a US Sales Office in Massachusetts to assist clients in learning more about Ethiopia, questions concerning travel to Africa and help to plan and book a trip. Our staff will help you choose a small group trip that’s right for you or design a private tour for you and your guests and family.
