Ethiopian Airlines Journeys and the Tanzania Tourist Board donated their new adventure package “Archaeology Adventure of East Africa” as one of the featured items in the Archaeological Institute of America’s Gala Dinner, held on April 28 at Capitale in New York. The “Archaeological Adventure of East Africa” received a tremendous reaction from the crowd of AIA members and partners. Sandhya Jain Patel, an Indian art specialist and auctioneer from Christie's, commented “If I could pick one trip to go on, the Archaeological Adventure of East Africa would be it.”

The Ethiopian package will feature stops in Axum, the reputed resting place of the “Ark of the Covenant”, along with Lalibela, where travelers marvel at the 12 rock-hewn churches, carved from solid red volcanic rock in the 12th century by King Lalibela. In Tanzania, travelers will be able to visit the Olduvai Gorge, the “Cradle of Mankind” and Laetoli Footprints, where the Leakeys discovered the first humanoid skull 50 years ago.

This special Archaeology package was not only auctioned off at the Gala, but has been added to the list of exciting packages that Ethiopian Airlines Journeys has to offer. Please visit www.seeyouinethiopia.com/archaeology for more information.
