Gondar, Ethiopia

gondar ethiopia safari

Gondar, Ethiopia. Flew by prop plane to Gondar, Ethiopia to the heart of the Timket celebration with the Nando's team. Massive parties in the streets and any body of water to be found. Spent friday night at shabbat services and then dinner with the Ethiopia Jews... black skinned jews wearing yarmulkes in an outdoor temple with dirt floors praying in Hebrew and Amharic... incredible! - Mark Lakin, Epic Road Co-Founder

Timket Festival

Timket Festival

Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The locals are celebrating the baptism of Jesus (Timket Festival) in colorful parades lining the streets. Ethiopians are warm, welcoming, and beautiful people. Spent the day walking the streets and visiting the local markets.
