Harar in detail


For a town so touristy, there's a dearth of quality places to stay, but there are plans to build tourist-class hotels with modern amenities. Alternatively, you could base yourself in Dire Dawa, which has better facilities.

Most of the commendable places are outside the walled town, but if you're after an original experience, consider staying in one of the Adare homes now functioning as a guesthouse in the old town.
