Ethiopia & Djibouti - Eastern Ethiopia (PDF Chapter)
Most of eastern Ethiopia is a stark landscape of dust-stained acacia scrub and forgettable towns. But scattered around this cloak of the commonplace are gems of genuine adventure. Un-doubtedly, the east’s pièce de résistance is the walled city of Harar.
- explore the magical jumble of alleyways of Harar’s old walled town, and witness the fa-mous feeding of the hyenas after nightfall
- take a tour of the popular Awash National Park, known for its outstanding birdlife and vari-ety of landscapes
- get out of the car and track elephants on foot around the underrated Babille Elephant Sanctuary
- restaurants & accommodation
