Up the Ethiopian ante with a mobile expedition in the Danakil Depression and a visit to Gheralta in the lesser-known Tigray region. You’ll join an intrepid mobile expedition and during the day, spend time with the nomadic Afar salt merchants and photographing the incredible landscape. There may also be a chance to hike to the rim of active volcano, Erta Ale, and gaze down into the lava lake. Culture vultures will get their fix with the churches of Lalibela and the relics of Christianity in Axum.
