Visit the impressive Debre Libanos Monastery, the famed Portuguese Bridge, the spectacular Blue Nile Gorge, and the haunting Saint Teklehaimanot Cave Church in just one day with an English-speaking guide. Marvel at breathtaking mountain landscapes and endemic wildlife, like bleeding-heart gelada baboons.
After pickup at your hotel or at the airport in Addis Ababa, drive 100 kilometers (68 miles) to the north and pass over undulating mountain ranges that shelter the famous bleeding-heart baboons, as well as various endemic birds. Arrive at Debre Libanos, a monastery complex founded by Ethiopian Saint Abune Tekle Haymanot in 1284 that sits on a terrace between a cliff and the gorge of one of the tributaries to the Blue Nile River (Jamma River).
Then, experience the breathtaking views of the Blue Nile Gorge, often compared with Arizona’s Grand Canyon. Admire the Portuguese Bridge, built by Ras Darge in the 1890s in a classic Portuguese style.

Breathtaking Nature, Wildlife and Cave Church Tour Reviews
Thanks to Emmanuel for being a great tour guide – I really enjoyed his passion & knowledge – its always great to see tour guides being fascinated by their own country and extending their learnings. I thought the day tour was fun – we got to experience the church, Portuguese bridge, amazing waterfall & a nice Ethiopian lunch all in a short space of time. Driving through the Ethiopian countryside is special as you get to see a lot of what one’s day to day is like out in the countryside & how they live life. The only negative, I guess, is that out of the 7 or 8 hour duration of this trip, around 4 hours is burnt in just driving around on extremely hard & bumpy roads which means that while this tour is suitable for those who don’t mind the bumps & harshness of the environment, it most certainly isn’t suitable for anyone who may have back issues and/or motion sickness.
This was an amazing trip! I would recommend it to anyone visiting Addis Ababa. We had a wonderful time with Emmanual (our guide) and Sammy (our driver). This tour had a little bit of everything (making it a great choice if you do not have much free time) including: stunning views of beautiful landscape, a very well-informed and passionate guide, the chance to taste delicious Ethiopian coffee and food in authentic settings, sightings of baboons in the wild, a visit to a local market, and the chance to get some insight into the daily lives of people living outside of the big city, as we drove through the villages. This is a day I will remember always. I want to add specific mention of Emmanuel, who is an excellent tour guide. He is so passionate about sharing his wealth of knowledge, and this really adds to the authentic feeling of the tour. Thank you Emmanuel and Sammy.
