Hi,
I'm planning to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in July. I have 3 companies on my mind which are;
-Climb Kili
-Enosa expeditions
-Thomson safaris
Climb Kili and Thomson safaris are very expensive compared to Enosa Expeditions but both of them provides same services. And to me price is not a big deal but what i need is best services. My two colleagues suggested Enosa Expeditions because they used them before for safari trips and they told me they were offered good services. And am thinking about choosing…

Hello,

Has anyone recently crossed the boarder between Ghana (Paga) and Burkina Faso (Leo) and knows how much visa's cost. Everyone says it cheaper to get a visa in Accra or Kumasi. However, as I am based in Tamale it will cost me to get to Accra/Kumasi or use a travel agent. As such, I am trying to find out the cost of the visa at the boarder.

The specific visa I am interested in is a 12 month multi-entry visa.

Thanks

Hi guys,
Just want to recommend a very nice tour guide in Addis (and for all around Ethiopia): Kibruyisfa Melaku (Kibru)!
I don't usually hire guides, but when I met Kibru in the hotel I was staying I decided to spend a day with him and never let him go! He is very trustful and helpful and knows the best way to travel around cheaply. I even left my luggage at his place while went to Lallibela (I was on my way to Europe with a big suitcase) and had the chance to meet his mom and sis, very nice…

Hi All,

I have a 12 hour layover at Addis Ababa airport. I have no problems hanging around and keeping busy at the airport, although this is my first time at Addis Ababa. I know African airports tend to be smaller than those in Europe and I wanted to make sure I will be able to stay in the airport terminal over night. My flight gets in at 10pm and the next leaves at 10am so it's not ideal for me to leave anyways. Any suggestions?

OK, I can tell you right now that money is going to be your biggest headache. The government of Eritrea abruptly changed the currency at the end of last year (2015) in an effort to crush the black market. At least temporarily, it worked. As of early May 2016, the official exchange rate is 15 nakfa to 1 U.S. dollar and the black market rate is 20 nakfa to 1 U.S. dollar. Before last year, the black market rate was around 60 nakfa for 1 U.S. dollar. For euros, the official exchange rate is 16…
