Axum Budget Travel

Axum budget travel tours are packed with adventure, sights and wonder. Axum lies in Ethiopia and is a highly recommended stop over on any overlanding tour in this stunning, culture-rich area.

The ancient capital, located on the northern border of Ethiopia, is famous for its stelae rock formations and array of palace ruins.

Axum Budget Safaris

Axum budget safaris are ideal for travellers seeking a memorable, cultural holiday with a wealth of historical ruins and temples to explore.

Travellers can visit the famous Church of St. Mary of Zion, where the Ark of the Covenant is said to be found after being stolen from temple of Jerusalem. Sadly, the Ark is not visible to anyone, but this landmark is still a fascinating part of Ethiopian history and legend.

Other attractions include the Northern Stelae Field where granite formations can be seen for miles, ruins of the Palace of the Queen of Sheba, Lioness of Gonedra stone carving, the tombs of the kings Kaleb and Gebre Meskel and the Archaeological Museum.
