Book Description
Awe-inspiring, beautiful and sometimes heartbreaking, Ethiopia and Eritrea are not like anywhere you've been before. A realm of rock-hewn churches, buzzing bazaars and untouched wilderness, the Horn of Africa is truly unique. See the mist rising off the mountains, hear the gurgle of children's laughter in the narrow streets of Harar, or catch a glimpse of a wolf prowling under the thorn trees.
The Best Coverage - the only guidebook to comprehensively cover Ethiopia and Eritrea and explain how to cross between them via Djibouti.
Read Up - all the details you need to travel the Historical Circuit, including ancient cities in northern Ethiopia.
Bring Out The Adventurer - climb a rope, use toeholds or walk a ledge to reach churches and hill-top monasteries.
Eat And Drink - know your "injera" from your "kitfo," and why the third cup of coffee is the most important.
Travel Safely- we keep you worded up on the scams, health issues and no-go areas.
