I write this to get some advice: I am planning to travel to South Africa via Ethiopia and I was wondering whether a 2-week itinerary would be good for Ethiopia? Or should it be 3-week? What places should I visit? I am not a true backpacker and don't want to do camping et. al. However, hostels are fine for me and I certainly don't want to spend a fortune on high-end tours and hotels. Any ideas are much appreciated. I like natural attractions, historical places, etc. Thanks…

Shootings had been going on day and night in Gondar, the tourist capital of Ethiopia, since around July 8. Dead bodies on the street & mass protests. The Ethiopian government is trying to prevent this information coming out, by blocking social media such as Viber and Facebook.
Here some images of the unrest:
I have been living in Ethiopia for 5 and a half years. Although I visited several towns as part of my duty, it is only in May of this year that I actually toured Ethiopia when a couple of friends flew in. I hope that my experience , mistakes and observations would give you some insights for planning your tour.
Our initial plan was to do a 3 weeks( 21) days tour in Northern and Southern Ethiopia. We later extended by 6 days and added 3 domestic flights to include Harar and add a few more…
