Professionalist from the start to the end
We made a trip in Octomber 2023 with Senaith tour around Ethiopia in 3 parts:
I. Simien mountaion trek – The trekking team was helpful, the chef was perfect and the food was delicious. The guides were very good.
II. Gondar, Tana and Bahir dar – The transportation was comfortable, the hotels were perfect, as the overall organization and guide.
III. Afar region – Erta ale and Danakil – Again comfortable transportation, delicious food, cold dirnks and wine (!) and very good guide and drivers.
The guide Gabriel is a real professionalist!
I would definitely recommend Senaith! They know the country in details, so they are flexible and can improvise in every situation to give the clients the best possible experience!

A well organised in-bound tour to beautiful Ethiopia
We have recently returned from a 22-day trip through Ethiopia (October 2023) that we booked through Senait Ethiopia Tours and must give a huge shout out to the team at Senait.
Firstly, and importantly, we doubt that you will find a more honest tour operator than the owner of Senait, Taddese Atlaw. We initially booked our tour in 2019, pre-Covid. A deposit was paid and then of course, out travel plans were disrupted for a few years. Taddese honoured our deposit for a trip we finally managed to take four years later. That is customer service!
The team Senait used are all to be commended. Every one of them gave generously of their local knowledge, opinions and guidance and happily answered the many, many questions we threw at them. The tour was extremely well organised and all vehicles and accommodation were of a high calibre. A couple of guides/drivers need particular mention. Mr. Meseret (Messi) (Barhi Dar-Gondor-Simian Mountains- Lalibela) whom we used for the first 10 days is our brother. A careful driver, a thoughtful and reflective person, and a lover of good music. Mr. Leul was our guide in Lalibela, and organised the cooking experience for us. Mr. Yacob Kedir both met us from the airport and delivered us back after a wonderful tour of the Rift and Omo Valleys.
The tour itinerary was well thought out. We hit almost all the highlights including hanging with the Gelada (grass eating monkeys) in the Simian Mountains, the famous hewn rock churches of Lalibela, overnighting under the stars in the spectacular Danakil Depression, and engaging with some of the highly varied tribespeople of the Omo Valley.
The cuisine of Ethiopia is very good, and we enjoyed learning how to cook traditional food in a local family’s back garden. We will definitely be trying this at home!
Security questions still hang over this beautiful country, but they are not as bad as western travellers are often led to believe by their Governmental agencies. Senait were always on top of any security concerns, and organised our trip to fly-over any state borders to avoid any potential conflict. They monitored our activities daily and forewarned us when there would likely be no internet. We didn’t get to Tigray, Somali or the Western States as Senait deemed them too uncertain from a security POV. That gives us an excuse for revisiting at some time in the future!
This was a well organised and fascinating tour. We experienced the culture, nature, cuisine, and various religions of the region. We have absolutely no hesitation recommending Senait Ethiopian Tours to our fellow travellers.

Ethiopia has been on my bucket list for years and choosing the right tour company was really important to me especially taking my Dad there for the first time. SENAIT Ethiopia Tours really understand customer service at the highest level. They looked after my Dad and I exceptionally well throughout the tour and each city we travelled we had a very knowledgeable and friendly local guide in Addis, Bahir Dar and Lalibela. We learnt so much and the beauty of Ethiopia should not be missed, we’ll be back to again in the future and would be happy to choose the same company again.

Great experience, everything was well organized from the initial communications to the trip itself.
Our experience with Senait tours was great - it was 5 of us, 3 adults and 2 kids. We reached out to the Managing Director, Taddese, who was very responsive from the initial request to use the company for our trip from Addis to Gondar and answered all of our follow up questions quickly. We let him know what hotel we wanted to stay at, as well as the places we wanted to visit - Senait took care of the hotel booking and provided a thorough itinerary for our trip. The only thing we had to book was our flights in and out of Gondar. It was very helpful to not have to worry about any of the coordinating of the trip itself, and all fees for the Gondar itinerary aside from tips and eating out were covered in the price of the trip we paid to Senait.
We were greeted at the airport by our driver Kidus, who was very friendly and a very good/safe driver. He drove us in a very nice, clean van for every part of the trip and was very knowledgeable about the area. The two main visits on our trip were to the Simien Mountain which was a day trip, and then another day we toured Faciles castle as well as a few other churches/destination points within Gondar.
We were very pleased with our experience with Senait tours, and would definitely recommend using them for any tours within Ethiopia.

The tour operator is supremely professional, pays attention to every detail, and totally honest.
I conduct photography tours all over the world. In Ethiopia, I use Senait Ethiopia Tours because they are the best. They are a pleasure to work with, they take care of every detail, and if there is a problem -- like a charter plane with mechanical issues -- they are on the phone taking care of the problem. A tour to Ethiopia for a group of photographers is quite complex. It involves multi-vehicle caravans, camping, charter flights, meal planning, commercial flights, relationships with tribal chiefs, and more. I've now completed two tours to Ethiopia using Senait, first with 14 people and then with 12 people, and each time everything worked like clockwork. All of our drivers, guides, and camp personnel couldn't have been nicer. Our primary guide, Gebre, stayed with us the entire trip and he was nothing less than phenomenal. The meals we had surprised my clients' expectations because they were so good, even when we camped for two nights in the Omo River Valley. You might find another company that is as good as Senait, but you won't find one that's better.

Excellent service! Exactly what you need while discovering new countries
We just finished our 12 days tour with Senait. We’ve visited volcanos in the northern part of Ethiopia, 7 tribes in Omo valley and Lalibela complex.
It was an amazing experience and I would recommend to visit all these sites. Guides and drivers were always there when you need them, always helpful.
Service during our adventitious trip was excellent and beyond expectations. Food from the chef was tasty and delicious, my special regards to Mr. Chef!
Yishak and Leul were great guides with a lot of patience and help when we need it.
For the next trip to Ethiopia we definitely have our choice with Senait!

Ethiopia is a beautiful country with amazing people, history, beautiful landscapes and nature... Thank you for such a unforgettable beginning of my Ethiopian adventure.
Senait Ethiopia Tours are professional, friendly, and designed a wonderful tour for our group.
We traveled with a group of 29 Grade 8 students to Bahir Dar and Gondar. Senait Ethiopia Tours handled the complexities and energy of our group so well. They were patient, flexible, and really helpful. Our tour guides had great energy and personalities and were very knowledgable. I would travel with them again, no question! They made every aspect of our trip smooth, from food to transportation. We felt very safe and cared for!
