Venture Ethiopia Ltd

Venture Ethiopia Ltd is a UK-based independent travel agency.  We work with Venture Ethiopia Tours and Travel to help you plan your trip and answer your questions. We also help promote Venture Ethiopia Tours and Travel internationally. In all cases, Venture Ethiopia Ltd acts as a retail agent and Venture Ethiopia Tours and Travel as the principal. Why do we have this arrangement? Because unfortunately, it's still difficult for Ethiopian tour operators to operate independently internationally. This is our bespoke solution to ensure as much of your money as possible goes to Ethiopian people and projects.
