Ethiopia's population is made up by more than 80 different groups
Visitors on activity holidays to Ethiopia will be confronted by more than 3,000 years of culture and tradition.
One of the most diverse countries in Africa, this territory is also among its most populous and resides in the Horn of Africa.
According to the official tourism board, there are more than 80 different ethnic groups in Ethiopia, each with their own language, culture and traditions.
The country is known particularly for its "strong religious setting", with Christianity and Islam having had a significant impact not only on people's beliefs, but also the architecture of its cities.
A great example of this is the walled city of Harar, which is considered by many in the Islamic world to be the most important holy city after Mecca, Medina and Jerusalem.
Beyond its winding streets and impressive mosques, Harar is also known for its bustling street markets, offering all sorts of traditional wares.
Sightseeing and historical tours are both on the cards in this wonderful historical city on the Tailormade Mountains, Markets & Mosques itinerary, which also takes in Addis Ababa and the Langano Beach Resort.
