Tours for the Discerning Traveler
Ethiopian Quadrants runs tours for those travelers who want that little bit more – not simply good service but also insights into the culture and customs of the countries they visit.
In addition to running tours on the more popular tourist circuits, such as the Historic Route, Simien Mountain Trekking, the Rift Valley and Bale Mountains, and the Omo Valley, we can organise tours off the beaten track, in the Afar Region, Gambella, the west bank of the Omo, and BeniShangulGumuz.
We also provide a variety of specialist tours, in ornithology, flowers and plants, geology, and anthropology, and can set up study tours in the discipline of your choice, from Art to Zoology, linking up with Ethiopian institutions and associations, specialists and experts.
All of our tours can be tailored to meet our clients’ special interests, and are specially planned to make the visitor less of a consumer and more of a participant in Ethiopian life, culture and custom.
Ethiopian Quadrants is committed to ensuring that host communities benefit as much as possible from tourism receipts, and to exploring ways whereby benefits can be maximised.
Generally, we believe in corporate responsibility, we support various local development initiatives in different areas of the country, sponsor a football team here in Addis Ababa , and assist a number of children with school fees and other expenses. Some of our original football team are now attending university, and we have continued to provide assistance with grants for clothing and incidental expenses.
We can also help with filming in Ethiopia, Tony Hickey the General Manager has worked with more than 80 film crews here and has himself produced and directed documentaries.
Although Ethiopian Quadrants was founded relatively recently, in 2006. Tony Hickey’s experience goes back many decades, and prior to setting up Ethiopian Quadrants, he was a founding member of two other private sector tour companies, which are still running today. Similarly, several members of our staff had worked for many years in the sector before joining Ethiopian Quadrants.

Now that I am un-jetlagged I just wanted to thank you all for everything you did to make my recent trip to Ethiopia so easy and enjoyable.
Thank you Eta! And thank you Tony for arranging super evenings at the Road Runner and the Australian Residence farewell party and all E Q drivers.
Kindly accept my sincere appreciation and looking forward to work with you all in the coming future.
I recently spent nearly 2 weeks in the Omo Valley and Harar with Daniel Ademe and his driver : Asrat of your firm as part of a 5 week volunteer/touring trip arranged by the Africa Adventure Company and wanted to let you know how
much I enjoyed their expert guiding and transportation. Having travelled to 150 countries I think I have a pretty good idea of quality service and Daniel is one of the very best; he is knowledgable, flexible, on top of everything and a genuinely nice guy. Also Asrat is an excellent driver and a very knowledgeable bird guide; he
actually got me interested in birds. In addition, the itinerary, accommodations, meals and flights all worked out perfectly. Thank you.
PS Also on my previous trip to Ethiopia 2 years ago with your company I wouldcommend Daniel Miliron and the arrangements as well.
