Kibrom Tesfaye

Kibrom Tesfaye

Kibrom was born in Tigray region, northern Ethiopia, often considered as an open air museum. Aside modern education, he was made to follow religious education, a golden opportunity that had familiarized him with church treasures, ancient religious paintings and murals, the different arts and styles of Ethiopian crosses, and a lot more about the interesting peculiar Ethiopian traditions. While in high school, during his summer break, he used to work as an assistant and translator for the foreign researchers and scholars in different places around Tigray.
As a result of such a seasonal, informal working experience with foreigners, he turned his face to the study of tourism and its wonderful ground reality.

After finishing high school, he joined the Catering & Tourism Training Institute of Addis Ababa and graduated with tourism management, specializing in tour guiding.
He has also studied other disciplines, including management, journalism, and short courses about the tourism industry. His proficiency in one of the most ancient languages of Ethiopia, Geez, in which many of the historical manuscripts of Ethiopia are written, has even helped him get a full grasp of history. He is currently writing a book on the different types of crosses found in Ethiopia, about which, little can be found written and documented.

Kibrom is extremely sensitive to details and provides extra-care for the comfort of each and every member in the group he guides. His intensely caring personality makes him an exceptional guide that stays within the memories of many travelers.
