Senait Ethiopia Tours was founded over ten years ago in 2008 by Mr. Taddese Atlaw who is still the owner and managing director. A young and energetic travel professional Taddese worked for a number of prominent tour companies based in Ethiopia before creating his own business based around his unique vision of what a tour should be.
Having spent much of his time managing and organizing ground arrangements, Taddese knows the importance of smooth logistics in a tour. It is one of those things that if it is done absolutely right, it will be almost entirely unnoticed by the guest but is nevertheless utterly essential for their enjoyment.
Always striving to update himself and his business in terms of his offering to his clients and his plans for the future, Taddese is seldom satisfied with the standards of yesterday and is always looking to improve. Combining his professional experience with studies on sustainable community based tourism as well as his Marketing Management degree from Addis Abba University, Senait Ethiopia Tours is one of the most cutting edge tours in the country.
THE DRIVE BEHIND THE BUSINESS
Taddese’s main drive has always been to have an ethical, client orientated business that provides the best value for his guests that is of the highest standard and cost effective. A business that is as known for it’s reliability and community-responsible services as it is for its engaging and entertaining safaris.
The average tour lasts between six to eighteen days and can include a range of focusses including biking, cultural and historical tours and family adventure tours. All managed by Taddese’s professional and friendly staff and making use of their new tourist class range of vehicles.
Accommodation is in 3 and 5 star locations and the tours are updated regularly with major overalls taking place every two years. The backbone of their business is solid relationships with local people, staff, clients and other service providers.
THE IMPORTANCE OF GUEST SATISFACTION
According to Taddese his company’s success is entirely dependent on the enjoyment of his guests. To him and his team, every tour is make-or-break and has to be of the best quality.
“Our business is in the hands of our clients,” he says.
And this is not just a hollow slogan. For a service provider such as SET, the recommendations of their satisfied customers have more lasting effects than any amount of literature or promotional materials
They help charities and organizations working to improve conditions in areas that they are associated with by direct help. Some of the local community schemes they currently support involve building schools in Sendafa and drilling wells for drinking water.
New and regular guests can expect some amazing new developments this year including all new paragliding tours. This will offer guests a totally new perspective for seeing Ethiopia and a chance to make some lifelong memories.
