Habtamu Teferie

I warmly welcome you to discover and experience my beautiful country with me!

My name is Habtamu Teferie. I am a qualified and licensed tour and trekking guide, specialized in organizing and guiding tours for individuals and small groups. It is my passion to explore remote mountain villages and encounter my country’s unique peoples, lifestyles and cultures.

I was born in the remote highlands around Abune Yosef Mountain and grew up in Lalibela, combining school and several side jobs. With the indispensable support of the Dutch sponsors I studied Tour Guiding and Tourism and Hotel Management in Addis Ababa. In addition, I studied German Language at GOETHE Institute. After graduation I started working as a freelance tour guide for different tour operators.

From the bottom of my heart I want to bring people together, who are keen to learn about Ethiopian tribes and peoples, their lifestyles and cultures. I consider it my mission to let the visitors experience the real Ethiopia: how communities live together simply and happily, and in good harmony with nature. This means that we travel around in compliance with the guidelines of ecotourism and sustainability. We will enjoy spectacular landscapes, endemic wildlife, ancient rock-hewn and cave churches, and the ordinary and religious everyday life. In short: scenic Ethiopia!

My specialism is organizing custom-made guiding tours in Ethiopia, but I can organize any tailor-made tour you wish along the east African country’s. Please have a look at the examples of other tours on this website, that I can organize for you.
