THE ETHIOPIAN ADVENTURE 2021
The first UK organised rally to visit Ethiopia
Discover ancient Ethiopia
Rally Round is thrilled to be taking the first ever classic and vintage car rally to stunning Ethiopia.
It is unbelievable how far Ethiopia has come since the images of the early 1980s. Over 25-days, we will journey across this incredible country, taking is as much of the landscape as possible.
Our own Doctor John Llewellyn has vast knowledge of the country and has worked with the team to create a spectacular route that incorporates the Blue Nile, the castles in Gondor, the Simien Mountains, and Lake Tana to name a few.
The Ethiopian Adventure will start and finish in the Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa, the country’s largest city. From there, our route will cover approximately 4,800kms.
Because we want to focus on the journey and the amazing landmarks and sights to discover, this will be a non-competitive event and organised in the same vein as the Trans-Himalayan Adventure.
The accommodation will be the best hotel on offer as well as eco lodges and possibly one or two-nights camping.
Numbers for this event will be limited due to the restrictions on accommodation. This event is open to all vehicles.
