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, resulting in Ethiopia vacations filled with memorable encounters and great access to culture and people. A whole new world of food, wildlife, and fun is waiting for you in this proud country with a fascinating ancient history.
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. We won’t let a busy schedule be what keeps you from the Ethiopia vacations of your dreams, which is why we have such a versatile timetable.
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. Understandably, you will have many questions as you plan to travel to Ethiopia, from what is best to wear, to ways that you should prepare. 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.
Private & Group Tours
