We had booked a tour through Western, Northern and Eastern Ethiopia with EVG and made a deposit for the driver, Geta. Due to an illness, we are unable to complete the tour this year, and need to recoup our deposit. Is anyone interested in booking the driver for the time period? The car is also equipped with camping gear (tent and mattresses). Please private message me and I will get you in touch with EVG, Bernie.

Virunga Pickup from Goma

I am visiting Virunga in September and booked the entire trip directly with Virunga National Park. I will come from Kigali (Rwanda) with a cab. However, I am wondering if anyone knows how to arrange the exact meeting place and time for Virunga staff to pick me up at the border in Goma. I already paid for the transportation, but I did not receive any notification about the pickup details. Also, I've read that I should plan on the cab ride from Kigali to take about 3 hours. Is that accurate? If…

Hi All,
We are two women trying to travel to Harar in the morning from Addis Ababa. It seems that everywhere I look there is differing information. Sky uses leave from Mercato or Meskel at 5:30 or 6am. Do they leave everyday?
Also read that there are minibuses that will leave from Meskel, but they guys at Baro Hotel say this is not true.
Sky bus website says they leave only three days a week.
We would like to leave Thursday morning and return for Friday afternoon to meet my friend's cousin back in…

Hi! Hoping someone can help me out with this. My US family will be traveling to Ethiopia soon with two-year multiple-entry tourist visas we have already obtained. While we don't intend to stay two years, we may be there more than 90 days. I believed the two-year visa meant we could stay as long as two years, should we decide to. My husband says he thinks we can still only stay in the country as tourists for 90 days at the most. I can't seem to find any detailed info on this on the embassy…
