    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: El valle de Omo, ver sus tribus. Para llegar alli es imprescincible alquilar un coche en Addis Abbeba. En el año 1995 no habia hoteles, y es obligatorio acampar para dormir.
    El norte de Etiopia es imprensionante por sus paisajes verdes. Nada que ver con las imagenes de sequia y hambre que nos han mostrado tanto tiempo por television. Paisajes montañosos y verdes. Nada mejor que verlos que viajar en autobuses locales en algun trayecto, viaje incomodo por el estado de las carreteras pero sin duda inolvidable.

    Fondest memory: The Simien mountains. We went up to about 3000 meters, and the view was spectacular! The most amazing view I have ever experienced. We camped the night and were treated to a beautiful sunset. If you camp in the Simien mountains, it is highly recommendable to have a very warm sleeping bag as temperatures drop to below freezing point. We had a guide who took us to an area where a troop of Gelada baboons were grazing. We sat for hours watching them.

    Favorite thing: We begin in the Omo Valley, a narration of Southern Ethiopia's ethnic diversity, where proud nations of Hamer, Karo, Mursi and Buni tribespeople still live the way they have for centuries.

    Trip Highlights:
    • Visit villages of the stone age Karo, Hamer, Mursi and Bume tribes.
    • Explore hand-carved rock churches of Lalibela & fairytale castles of Gondar.

    Fondest memory: The Coffee and the poeple!!!!!!ETHIOPIA, will always be in my heart!! :)

    Favorite thing: Visit the different tribes in and around southern E thiopia.

    Fondest memory: The people are very friendly and helpful. You will get use to their food,but in many parts of Ethiopia a white person is unusal and many people will stare .Remember that all white persons are considered rich, and by their standards ,you are. There is little in the line of payed work,and if they do work ,the pay is very low (2 usd per day) My guide and friend
    OBANG OMOD in Gambella is a totally trustworthy guide and he speaks fair English.He was very helpful during my stay in Gambella.

    Favorite thing: One of the most isolated and interesting tribes of Ethiopia are the Mursi who live by the Omo river. They are not easy to find. They have a very interesting culture of 'Body Art' by painting and making scars on their body.

    Fondest memory: The men usually draw beautiful patterns on each other body, using clay taken from the river. The women put round discs in their lips from a very young age. This is a tradition kept from time of slavery. The disc kept them 'ugly' and not good as slaves.

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: I am sure Ethiopia has changed much since I was there in 1984. It was under Communist rule at the time.
    However, trips to any of the villages of Baha Dar or Gonder or to one of the wild life reserves are well worth the time. Also get to Lalibela if you can. I could not get there at the time and have been wanting to get back because of that.

    Fondest memory: There were so many wonderful experiences. But one thing that sticks out in my mind was the morning the monkeys came to breakfast. People started throwing bread to them. 'oh aren't they darling,' the people said. I just moved back knowing what was coming.

    Eventually the tourists got tired of feeding this small army of monkeys and went back to their breakfast. What they didn't plan on was that the monekeys hadn't gotten tired of eating. What ensued was the 'Battle of Awash'. Monkey's everywhere. Bread fly, dishes crashing. It was a riot. Needless to say the monkeys won the day. I was quite proud of their tactical abilities.

    by terhy Written Aug 24, 2002

    Favorite thing: Go to two different restaurants to eat: Sheraton in Addis and a local restaurant in a small town. The difference is amazing!

    Fondest memory: Getting to know some local people, visiting their homes, eating and drinking coffee with them. Also participating a church service of Mekane Yesus Protestant Church: how nice and loud singing there was! The churches were full of enthusiastic people.
