EthioGuzo Tour and Travel is a responsible inbound tour operation established in 2005 by a Canadian and an Ethiopian, a team that provides the deeper understanding of what a foreign visitor to Ethiopia requires in a tour and the local knowledge that is so essential to operate a sustainable quality tour company in Ethiopia.
EthioGuzo translated "Ethiopian Journeys" in Amharic, provides a diverse range of exciting and informative tours for medium to high end travelers to Ethiopia's numerous fascinating historical, cultural and natural destinations. Our tours cover history, culture, birding, photography, wildlife, nature, adventure, trekking, horseback riding, cycling, exploration and educational opportunities. We provide opportunites for volunteering or "voluntourism".
Mission statement. Our mission is sustainable ecotourism, providing wholesome responsible tours that leave little impact and benefit not only our visitors but also the locals and places we visit.
EthioGuzo is committed to the principles of sustainable and responsible ecotourism. Our journeys emphasize respect for the culture, environment and archaeological and historical sites. There are ample opportunities on our trips to engage directly with the local people and experience their everyday life allowing our visitors to gain understanding and respect for their way of life.
We collaborate with eco-friendly businesses, community development organizations, and community eco-tourism programs that bring benefits to local communities and ecosystems. These partners facilitate in allowing our visitors the unique and educational opportunities for positive interactions and cultural immersion experiences with the local people.
We are member of the Ethiopian Traveler's Philanthropy program developed by the USAID supported Ethiopian Sustainable Tourism Association. We are also a member tour operator of the Guassa Community Conservation Area. We run tours for outbound sustainable tour companies such as Tourdust, Extraordinary Journeys, and G Adventures.
