We are happy to welcome and host small groups of up to 3 or 4 who wish to visit their sponsored students/projects, but please make your own travel/visa arrangements to Mekelle. We regret that we lack the capacity or infrastructure to host larger groups.
On arrival we can make hotel bookings & travel arrangements for your visits. Most of our activities are in poor remote rural non-tourist areas. Please be aware that the culture clash by the sight of over-seas visitors - so rich by local standards - can be a discomforting spectacle. Bisrat, our EYES Manager at [email protected] is an experienced independent Tour Operator and, given prior warning, can arrange tourist trips for you. He can advise you generally both before and during your visits and fix transport, accommodation and a guide/interpreter.
Ethiopia doesn't have a highly developed “tourism” infrastructure. Some services are quite basic and medical facilities for foreigners may not always be available. All this is compensated for by a beautiful historic country with absolutely charming, cultured, highly intelligent and welcoming people whose smiles will melt your hearts. Be assured, any visit you make will be unforgettable - and probably change your life.
