Hi

I am travelling to Ethiopia and preferring to camp around Shashamane and was wondering if that is possible to do. I am wanting to keep costs down and not sure if this is a option. Any help would be appreciated

Cheers

I booked a trip to the Danakil Depression for July 2016 through Pangeans Safari. I sent the deposit ($570 USD) via bank transfer, as requested. Two weeks before my arrival, the trip was cancelled due to "security reasons,", he said. Christos assured me the money would be returned, in writing. My emails have gone unreplied, and the refund is nowhere to be seen.

$570 takes you a long way in Ethiopia. This was a major financial setback on my trip, and I've wasted so much time trying to recover…

Hey, I just got back from Ethiopia and stuck with the currency as no currency exchanges here deal with this currency. If you are interested in buying my currency back let me know.

1,600 Ethiopian Birr is $72.30 USD. I'd sell it for a flat $70.00 (no shipping fees). We can work it out through paypal. Thanks, let me know (email: icewave667@gmail.com)

(All notes are 100 Birr bills)

Hello! We're a Canadian family of three and we're in Maun, Botswana right now. We'd like to do a self-drive in Namibia and would like to pick up a car in Maun and drive across the border. Most rental companies charge a crazy drop fee making it impractical.

Does anyone have any leads on companies that would not charge a drop fee? Perhaps a company that we could take their car BACK to Namibia for them?

Any leads are appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi,

we are planning a short trip in november (5d/4n), and are considering a quick visit of Morocco. Coming from Belgium, we can fly into Fez, Marrakech or Agadir (and some other cities). Our first thought was a citytrip to either Marrakech or Fez, but actually, we are not really city-people, and prefer the outdoors and more remote location. So we would spend 1 or 2 night in the city, but would prefer a nice outdoor location for the remaining 3 (or 2) nights. We like to take some walks, and stay…

Hi

I'm going to Senegal for work in November 2016. I will have three days before the conference starts for tourism things and either one or two days after, depending on when I book flights. I will be based in Les Almadies, near the airport whilst working - those days will be jam packed though and won't have time to do anything in that area on those days, even in the evenings. I will be travelling alone, and am female in my mid twenties, don't speak much french.

I'm thinking for the 3 days…
