Coronavirus: a message to our customers
If you are due to travel shortly, we will be in touch to support and guide you in either postponing or cancelling your holiday, based on current Foreign Office advice and your insurance arrangements.
We hope that international travel will resume soon, but to ensure you can still enjoy a holiday this year, we have introduced the following new initiatives:
(a) For all new 2by2 Holidays we have relaxed our Booking Conditions, with refundable deposits & later final payment dates. This will allow you to plan your next long-haul holiday with more confidence, despite coronavirus uncertainties.
(b) We have launched Auriel Holidays – dedicated to finding you a range of wonderful holidays closer to home. Working with like-minded tour operators, who know their destinations intimately, safety is uppermost in everyone's minds. Our holidays within the United Kingdom and Europe will be mindful of this, and can be tailor made to your exact requirements - whether travelling by road, rail, sea or air.
After three months of hibernation, we are more than ready to start dreaming again!

Warm regards

Claire Farley, Managing Director

When to go to Ethiopia

Ethiopia is a very large country with huge variations in climate - ranging from the high altitude Bale Mountains, which sometimes have snow, to the extreme heat of the Danakil Desert. The Central Highlands have a temerate climate, whilst the Eastern Lowlands and the far south are dry and hot.
The best time to visit Ethiopia (the historic northern route) is from October to June. The rainy season runs from July to September, when heavy rainfall can restrict travel.
Important festivals are held in January - Timkat (Ethiopian Christmas) and September - Meskel (finding the True Cross). The festival of Maryam Zion is at the end of November.
The Omo Valley can be visited all year round, except during April and May (their rainy season). The Danakil Depression is best visited from September to March.
Birding is best from November to March, as this is when the migrants visit.
2by2 Holidays are Africa specialists so please email or ring us on 01582 766122 for advice on the best time to visit Ethiopia.
