TV stars Arit Okpo and Meti Yilma explore an enigmatic country of African firsts!

From being the birthplace of Rastafarianism, home to Africa’s first female pilot and the only African country with its own alphabet…and many more firsts to uncover.

It’s about an emersion in a world of natural and cultural treasures, of being moved and mesmerised, of having your senses heightened and transported back to mythical, mystical times… It’s a warm embrace, an enlightened journey of the heart. Welcome to enchanting Ethiopia.

EbonyLife TV, a Pan African Entertainment channel, has teamed up with Wakanow, a one stop travel portal, to produce an upmarket travel show, Destinations Africa, designed for the African traveller, highlighting the continent’s top tourist destinations. The 30 minute, 12 part series airs its ETHIOPIA episode on EbonyLife TV DStv channel 165 on Saturday, 09 July at 20:30, Sunday 10 July 21:30 and Tuesday 12 July at 22:00 Central African Time.

What sets this travel series apart? We explore our own backyard the way the African traveller would experience their ideal vacation. Each episode features a Nigerian personality who meets a local host and together they explore the country’s top-end attractions, rich history, authentic treasures, culinary delights and some unexpected gems.

The featured destinations include: Kenya, Seychelles, Mauritius, Tanzania, Zambia, Rwanda, Ghana, The Gambia, Senegal, Ethiopia, Cote d’Ivoire, Nigeria.

Speaking on the partnership between EbonyLife TV and Wakanow, Mo Abudu, EbonyLife TV  CEO said, “It is an honour to be partnering with an organisation who have become the bridge between the traveller and the destination, they are becoming the one stop travel shop for Africans at home and in the diaspora.

Wakanow MD, Obinna Ekezie expressed his delight, “The DestinationsAfrica show points out that Wakanow is poised to become a key player, in not only Africa but the world, with an undying passion to change the way people travel. The program is an avenue to showcase the best of what Africa has to offer as well as the added value of getting well-priced travel packages made possible by the very extensive partnership that Wakanow has with Airlines, Hotels partners and tourism stakeholders in Africa.

Travelling opens our eyes to a world much bigger than ourselves. When we explore other cultures, we find that the things that make us similar are greater than the things that make us different.
