Hi guys! I wonder about safety situation in Ethiopia with current riots and military activity. A friend or friend working in Addis begs us to cancel the trip, I want to know more opinions from locals and tourists who are there right now to make a decision.
Thank you!

I visited Ethiopia in January this year and I've finally gotten around to doing write ups on the places I visited.

So far I have Harar (https://new-faces-new-places.com/2016/08/14/hyenas-in-harar/) and Addis Ababa (https://new-faces-new-places.com/2016/03/12/away-in-addis-ababa/ ).

I'll be adding more places in the coming weeks. Hope this can help someone! I'm happy to elaborate on anything or answer any questions!

Hi,

I'm traveling Ethiopia solo, starting in Bahir Dah on the 18 th of September. I've arranged a 3 day Simien trek from Gondar starting on Sunday the 25th via Simien Ethiopia Trekking, and so far it's just me....if anyone wants to join, let me know!

Also if anyone is kicking around the northern historical route from the 18th, it would be good to hear from you!

Hi there,

I was wondering if anyone knows if its worth it to go further in to see the Surma Tribe? I hear they are similar to Mursi but also heard that they are much more authentic and its less touristy? It would add a good 4 days onto my trip so would love some real input. I am a photographer, so I am really trying to get as authentic as possible even though I know there are a tons of tourists at this point. Im on a bit of a budget, so really want to make sure its worth it.

Also has anyone…

Hello!

I'm a 32 year old Australian, arriving in Addis on 23rd August.

Currently in Tanzania, this is my second time in East Africa, but it will be my first in Ethiopia.

Keen to connect with other travellers who may be keen to trek in the Simien Mountains - ideally 4-6 days from Gondar. Flexible with the itinerary.

Looking forward to hearing back!

Thanks!

Dear Community,

Beginning of September I'm going to travel to Johannesburg with a 17 hours layover in Addis Ababa. Therefore I would love to visit the city during my short stay and I'm looking for a reasonably priced tour guide who is reliable and would pick me up at the airport to show me around the countries capital! Do you have an recommendations and is there anything else I need to keep in mind?

Thanks a lot,

paranorm :)
