Book a national flight Addis Abeba - Gondar

Hi,
i will travel to Ethiopia next week and i will arrive at the International Airport of Addis Abeba in the night (01.10 a.m.). I would take the first flight to Gondar (7.40 a.m.). On the Ethiopian airlines website the cost of the ticket is 150 €. Do you know maybe how much it would cost directly at the airport? There is an Ethiopian airline's office at the airport which is open 24 h? Do you think that i will find a seat or is better i book it in advance by website?
Thank you all!
Marty

Bahir Dar to Harar via Woldia & Djibouti Road - doable?

Hi Guys,

I'd like to travel by public transport from Bahir Dar to Harar without going through Addis A (as I will do the route Harar - AA on my return).

Does anyone know how doable/reasonable it is to travel from Bahir Dar to Harar via Woldia - Mille or Logiya - Awash for example? Or any alternative route?
It seems there are a few buses to Woldia, but I'm not sure if it is possible to continue by public transport from there, and if so, whether it can be done in a couple of days or how long it…

News on the Hawassa fire

I'd appreciate any news on what was apparently a huge fire in Hawassa. There are Twitter referenced, and I've seen the YouTube video, but know little else.

Trekking from Dodola into the Bale National Park

We want to extend a 3-4 day trek in the Dodola and Adaba area and walk East into the Bale National Park, preferably towards the Harenna Forest. The Baletrek.com is not very clear whether this is possible.

Also we are a bit nervous of the heat in the Danakil - we are from Scotland and not used to anything above about 20C or so! Will we survive?!?
