Ethiopia travel, Ethiopia tourist attractions, Home of the Ark of the Covenant

Ethiopia is a land of big skies and broad landscapes. The highland plateaus reaches endlessly to a horizon and blend into blue sky, becoming an integral part of the landscape. The whole expansive view breaths of the freedom and joy that goes along with open spaces. However, it is the people of Ethiopia who truly round off the character of this intriguing land. They are intrinsically religious and as you travel the countryside you will see the distinct octagonal church topped with an Ethiopian.

According to Ethiopian legend, the Ark of the Covenant resides in Axum, the former capital of the ancient Axumite Kingdom, at the Church of St. Mary of Zion within a special sanctuary chapel. Ethiopia’s intriguing historical and religious sites are easily visited, including the “eighth wonder of the world,” the ancient rock-hewn churches of Lalibella.

The parks of Ethiopia have been set aside by the government as wildlife and botanical sanctuaries and enjoy a high degree of protection and management. The 20,756 sq. km of parkland serves as conservation, educational and recreational purpose for residents and visitors alike. Accommodation is of moderate standard, but the hospitality and friendliness are exceptional.
