Sadly, the state of emergency in Ethiopia led to the cancellation of the "Best of Ethiopia" tour in November. These are very hard times and I feel desperately sorry for the local guides and drivers with whom we work. Ethiopia is an extraordinary country and the people deserve a much better future than that which currently confronts them.
I must once again express my appreciation to everyone who joined me on tour in 2016 - best wishes for your travels in 2017. And finally, a huge thank you to all the local leaders, drivers and staff who work so hard to make us welcome and to ensure that every tour is a success.
