With a friend we are planning to spend 20 days in Ethiopia in October and we are looking for travel partners.
The idea is to be 8 aprox in order to rent a couple of 4x4, drivers included. The itinerary would be something like : Addis Abeba, Bahir Dar, Gondar, Simien National Park, Aksum, Gheralta, Hawzen, Mekele, Danakil desert (Dallol, etnia afar, Erta Ale, lago Afrera) and Lalibela. It's not fixed yet, so ideas are welcome.
It's not a comfortable trip so being adventurous and flexible is a must.
It is also important that you take 5 mins to research about Danakil desert and see if you are Ok with security issues.
