Serving as the 17th and 18th century capital of Ethiopia, Gondar is a place of otherworldly beauty, with numerous castle-like palaces earning it the nickname, “Camelot of Africa.” A typical day at Gondar includes a morning at the Royal Enclosure, visits to the Debre Birhan Selassie Church, and Fasilides Bat where a fascinating annual celebration known as Timket blesses the site and opens the baths for bathing.
